” We thought we’d sell it, and donate the proceeds to the Hall of Clestrain renovation fund.”
The books are the entire collection of Mr John Bramwell, a life member of the society.
“Orkney’s John Rae Society’s Fundraising group had the bright idea of asking supporters to do special sponsored challenges to raise urgently needed funds for our active Society.”
The John Rae Society commissioned Simpson & Brown Architects and Heritage Consultants to produce a Conservation Maintenance Plan for the Hall of Clestrain.
