In April, the Barony’s storage unit was completely destroyed by fire. Approximately $30,000 worth of equipment the Barony uses for events was lost—several newer tents, cooking and serving equipment for feasts, event supplies, and so on. Many within the East Kingdom and from other Kingdoms have offered various kinds of assistance. For this outpouring of assistance, we are very grateful
Now we know what’s been lost and have a plan to rebuild in place.
Time to get started!
How can you help?
One way is to donate dollars to help us replace the items below. This is the easiest, most direct way to help and donations to the Barony are tax-deductible. Our first goal is to replace the kitchen and serving items in time for Bjorn’s Ceilidh in November 2021. After that, we aim to rebuild the infrastructure for Wars of the Roses.
Even small donations will help us to reach our goal!
