Wallblake House - A Restoration in Process

Donation Information

The Wallblake House Trust has been formed on behalf of the people of Anguilla, to oversee the restoration of this once beautiful mansion. It is our stated intention to “restore the house to a condition as close to the original as possible”.

Thank you very much for visiting this page. We have a challenging road ahead, and we need all the help we can get. We have estimates that the restoration of the Wallblake House will cost in the vicinity of $250,000.00 US, and we are far from that goal (please refer to monthly progress report for funds collected so far). AND this does not even take into consideration the problem of up-keep, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. Our first priority is to make sure that the house does not fall down before we act!

We are offering for your trouble (and cash) the following:-

T-Shirts (Donation $30.00 per shirt) The T-shirt logos were designed by Richard McCandless and given to the restoration free of charge. We are working getting the logos scanned in to make your choice easier.

Limited-Edition Prints Signed and Numbered by artist (Donation $60.00 per print). The image you see on our home page is the painting done by Marj Morani. She has donated the original at no cost to the committee. We are offering the prints, though it is our hope to hang the original in a restored Wallblake House.

Cards of the Limited-Edition Print (Donation $ 20.00 per pack of 12)

Donor Hall of Fame ($1000.00) We will be posting a donor hall of fame, not only here at our website, but also we propose to create a plaque in the entrance hall of our restored house commemorating all our donors. We would, of course, ask permission before we published anyone’s name.

Donation of $10,000 or more. Thus far no-one has offered this amount of money, though we live in hope! We would like to think that if we were to be offered such a significant sum of money, we would at the very least offer a weekend in the restored house. And depending upon how many sizeable donations we receive, we would be prepared to dedicate one of the rooms or buildings to the donor.


We are currently running two raffles:-
  1. For off-island people, we are offering a week's holiday in Anguilla for four people. Airfare included. Each ticket is US$100 and the drawing will be held on November 25th, 1997.
  2. For Anguillian and West Indian residents, we are offering a week's holiday at Disney World for four people. Airfare included. An alternate prize of US$5,000 will be offered if the winner is not able to make the trip. Each ticket is US$100 and the drawing will take place on November 25th, 1997 -- the same day.
