Chawton.info is run for the benefit of residents and visitors. Our aim is to provide information that is relevant to the residents of Chawton today and to provide information on our proud heritage.
We have been running since 2006 and receive some of our funding from the Chawton and Farringdon Village magazine, in return we provide advertising for the local businesses who advertise in the Village magazine. However, since Chawton is a small Village and the web site is not related to any of the historic attractions, it receives no other funding, hence there is a shortfall in funding each year.
We make up the difference via PayPal donations. You don't need to have a PayPal account to donate to us, since PayPal accepts all major credit and debit cards. To simplify donations, we have provided several suggested amounts on the buttons below. You may of course donate any other amount, or just use the web site for free. Our simple dilemma is that if we cannot cover our costs each year, then we can't provide this service to you.
Please note that PayPal charges us varying amounts, which it takes from the amount you donate. Their charges to us are around 4% + 20 pence (£0.20), plus a currency conversion charge of 2.5% above the exchange rate if you are not paying in sterling (GBP). For this reason, donations of less than £5 do not result in a real funds reaching Chawton.info.
