Charlie is our Darwin

For Darwin fans everywhere, with members in 92 countries !

The Friends of Charles Darwin were founded in 1994 to campaign for the depiction of their hero, Charles Darwin, on a Bank of England bank note. The great man finally appeared on the new £10 note in November, 2000.

Due to popular demand, we're still taking on new members. So if you can truly say "Charlie is my Darwin", and you'd like to be able to write the letters FCD after your name, why not join us? It's free!

The Friends of Charles Darwin is run by +Richard Carter, FCD.
