Where there’s a will…

6 11 2011

The Whitworth’s new building is set to continue the important role the gallery has played in Manchester for over a hundred years. The Gallery and the collection would not be in the city at all if it weren’t for a number of generous benefactors who left funds and artworks to the Gallery in their wills. Legacies still play an important part in making the collection better for our visitors.

If you have ever thought about leaving a gift to Manchester’s arts and cultural organisations, our Legacies information evening on Thurs 24 Nov, 5-7pm at Whitworth Art Gallery will give you an informal opportunity to find out more. The event has been organised by the Whitworth, the Manchester Museum and Manchester City Galleries. Manchester law firm, JMW Solicitors and leading accountants, Hurst will talk about some of the practicalities of making a Will as well as dispel some of the myths. There will also be a wine reception and an optional tour of the Gallery.

For all of us, making a Will is one of the most personal and private decisions we are ever likely to make. Please be assured that we will not ask you about your plans, nor will we ask you personally to consider any of our individual organisations in your Will.

For more information or to book a place, please email magdevelopment.rsvp or phone Christina Georgiou on 0161 235 8851 by Fri 18 Nov (places are limited).
