Bath’s ‘History Makers’ open-air display – back in the summer – has also turned out to be an impressive money-maker for an important local charity.
A cheque for £9,188.64 – from the exhibition proceeds – has been presented to Sue Tucker of the Forever Friends Appeal – at her retirement party – for the proposed new Cancer Centre at the Royal United Hospital.
The ‘History Markers of Bath’ exhibition was set up by organiser Angela Calvert Jones on thirty large display panels along the paved corridor between Bath Abbey and Kingston Buildings.
They featured the famous – and infamous – characters who had all made a lasting impression on Bath and elsewhere.
Angela said: “When I first told Sue about my idea to hold a Bath outdoor street exhibition to celebrate history makers of the city and raise money for the cancer unit, she was not only incredibly positive and encouraging, but she suggested she should come on board and help, which is just what she did.
I am thrilled that we have been able to mark her retirement with the surprise presentation of a significant donation from this project”
