Marketplace of Commitments

Buy and Sell with QuakersFollowing the great success of the Auction, we have  launched an ongoing  Marketplace of Commitments with donations going to the appeal fund.

It works like this: look at the list of commitments below to see if there is anything you would like. Contact Jan (email at bottom of the page) to say how much you are able to donate. Jan will then put you in touch with the person offering the commitment.

But there’s more!
Below is a list of things Friends would like and are willing to make donations for. Can you provide any?

And finally, look at the list of items that Friends are prepared to donate in return for a donation to the Appeal.
