Thanks to all of you for your support so far. With nearly 50% of the funds raised we decided to press ahead with the boiler works, which commenced yesterday. With hopes for a busy half term opening next week and concerns about tumbling temperatures, we really had to act quickly. We still need your help to raise the remaining £4,500, as without this our finances will be stretched and we will have to divert funds away from our other work to celebrate the life of Edward Jenner. Please continue to tell others about our campaign!

We need your help to protect Dr Jenner’s House, Museum and Garden and ensure it can open to visitors this winter.
We urgently need to raise in the region of £8,500 to replace the central heating boiler in Edward Jenner’s former home, following the demise of our old system: a museum piece in itself! Central heating is vital to help us regulate the humidity inside the house, keeping safe this internationally important building and its collections. Without a new boiler, this landmark building will be at risk, as will our work sharing Jenner’s remarkable legacy and providing all manner of activities for the local community.
Or you can send a cheque (payable to “The Jenner Trust”) to Dr Jenner’s House, Church Lane, Berkeley, GL13 9BN. For more information about supporting us, please click here.
With your help we can continue to preserve Dr Jenner’s House for many winters to come.
