About the Friends of Charles Darwin

The Friends of Charles Darwin were originally founded to campaign for the depiction of their hero, Charles Darwin, on a Bank of England bank note.

On 7th November 2000, the Bank of England finally released its new £10 note featuring a certain Charles Robert Darwin, and some posh-looking woman wearing a crown.

Although we got exactly what we wanted we’re still taking on new members. Membership is free, 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?
