Since the late 1980’s the Friends of How Hill have been raising valuable funds to support the How Hill Trust. We thought you might like to know exactly where this money goes, so from now on you will be able to keep track of all the Friends-funded projects and equipment right here.
Thank you very much. We are very grateful!
