In order to raise money for Brighouse Central Foodbank for our annual fundraising to continue the legacy left in Ann Walker’s will, there are two unique items on auction. See the bottom of the blog for how the auction will run.


This is a handmade quilt (with pole sleeve for wall hanging) called “Miss Lister of Shibden Hall” made in California by Gen McGarvey, a member of the Gentleman Jack fandom. It is 180cm x 180cm.  This is an ideal gift for a fan of Anne Lister and Gentleman Jack.


This is a professionally printed square sign (70cm x 70cm on 4mm Correx – lightweight corrugated plastic board) created for the Ann Walker Tavern night at ALBW 2022.  It was hung in the event space for one evening. It features the Walker Crest created by Bicapop (Redbubble Shop) . This is an ideal gift for a fan of Anne Lister, Ann Walker and Gentleman Jack

The money raised for the items will be paid by the buyer through eBay to the eBay account of Diane Halford (co-founder of ISAW) and then it will be added to the fundraising appeal’s JustGiving Page under the name “Anne Lister Quilt” or “Walker Tavern” as soon as the payment has cleared and this will be evidence of the donation. eBay fees will be paid by the seller and will not affect the donation.
