Fundraising efforts for Bath Plaques

The UK Burney Society has ordered plaques to replace those for both Frances Burney d’Arblay and her half-sister, Sarah Harriet, which had disappeared from the gallery of St Swithin’s Church in Bath; so far, the Society has raised only £5010 out of the £7000 needed for the two plaques. Some UK members are advancing the difference but would be most grateful for some North American contributions. Despite appeals, few have been forthcoming from our side of the Atlantic. To obviate any difficulties in converting and sending funds to the UK, our treasurer Alex Pitofsky has agreed to receive North American donations (in $US cheques or money orders) to forward to the UK Burney Society.
