Thank you to everyone who supported our 2018 Annual Appeal and helped the Ashmolean raise over £65,000! The overwhelming public response to the appeal showed just how important involving older people in our programme is. The funds raised from the appeal will support our work to make the Museum a more welcoming place for older people, especially those affected by loneliness and those living with dementia or Alzheimer’s, supporting practical changes to our galleries such as improved seating, ramp access and clearer labelling, and creating opportunities for older visitors to enjoy creative and cultural participation.
We are very grateful to all those who generously donated to this appeal, allowing us to enrich the lives of our older visitors. Any additional funds we raise will go towards the Museum’s vital work, including public engagement, education, conservation and display.
