King’s Lynn Arts Centre has received a financial boost from the West Norfolk Artists’ Association.

The historic complex on King Street is run by a group of trustees.

The artists’ association presented a £500 cheque to the centre last Wednesday.

Chairman Kit Price Moss presented the cheque to Liz Falconbridge, director of the Arts Centre.

Mrs Falconbridge said the contribution would be used soley towards the training and salaries of the apprentices currently working at the centre.

Members of the artists’ association exhibit regularly at the centre, both individually and as a group.

The next show will be from September 7 to 15 and the annual Festival exhibition will be at St Nicholas Chapel from July to 20 to August 3.

The association unanimously decided to help the centre and the St Nicholas Chapel appeal which has been raising money towards a major restoration of the landmark medieval building.

Members gave £2,500 to the St Nicholas appeal. For further information about the association see the website: www.westnorfolkartists.org
