Without the Friends of Keswick Museum and Art Gallery’s enthusiasm and commitment, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
With the help of more than 200 members the Friends’ on-going aims are:
- To increase awareness of the museum and its collections
- To encourage, support and promote its activities
- To financially assist the museum with collection conservation, acquiring new collections and other projects.
This year they have purchased a painting, conserved a Vendace and two oil paintings, funded blinds for the learning area, run a market stall, served refreshments at several functions and assisted with start up funding for the museum shop and website! – a fantastic boost to the museum.
