Protecting Arundells for generations to come

Why support Arundells?

Sir Edward Heath loved Arundells and very much wanted the house, garden and his art collection to be retained and made available for members of the public to visit and enjoy following his death.

The Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation was established in 2006 with the core objective of fulfilling these wishes.
