A Night of Art

nite of art

People admire the works of art at our fund-raising exhibition.


Late last year, Ancoats Dispensary Trust held a fund-raising exhibition in the heart of the district, at the church of Halle St Michaels. The evening was billed as a ‘Night of Art’, in which various local artists displayed and sold their work in order to raise awareness and funds for the Ancoats Dispensary.

Earlier in the day, the researchers of COFH and members of ADT had met at Manchester Met to thrash out plans for the future and catch up over a brew. Once the business of the day was over, it was off to Ancoats to attend the Night of Art. From the researchers point of view it was great to meet other members of ADT and discuss the various developments of the project. There was a great deal of enthusiasm over the 100 Days blog and the researchers took the opportunity to publicise it even more. For a certain time in the evening they even helped out behind the merchandise desk, the first time that some of them had been involved in retail!

Linda Carver of ADT had earlier given a heartfelt speech to open proceedings and introduce the Trust’s new CEO. There was even an appearance by local actor and campaigner John Henshaw, who is a firm supporter of the work of the Trust. All in all the evening was a great success, with over £1000 raised towards the procurement of the Dispensary.
