Until now there were there were no women on the back of English banknotes – Jane Austen is the first on the new-look £10 note!
The new £10 note also includes a metallic image of Winchester Cathedral, where Austen was buried. It appears overlaid on a transparent window on the note and is gold on the front and silver on the back.
Features of the design on the reverse of the Jane Austen note will include the quote – “I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!” from Pride and Prejudice.
MASH are caught up in the excitement and are encouraging people to donate their first new £10!
£10 can stock up the MASH Mobile Drop-In for an evening helping us to reach 15 women out on the streets of Manchester.
If you haven’t got your hands on a brand new tenner yet you can easily donate on-line to MASH instead.
Everyone at MASH 🙂
