Museum Friends raise £8,000 to support the Wolsey’s Angels exhibition at Christchurch Mansion

Wolsey’s Angels have proved to be a big tourist attraction at Christchurch Mansion over recent months.

Denise Fiennes, the vice chairman of the Friends of Ipswich Museums celebrated the halfway point of the organisation’s Choir Of Angels Appeal by handing over the proceeds raised so far to the manager of Ipswich Museums, James Stewart.

The appeal was launched to support Ipswich and Colchester Museums, Wolsey’s Angels Exhibition being held in the Wolsey Gallery at the Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich through until March 2018.

It had been hoped £6,000 would be achieved up by now.

So far though the appeal devised by Denise Fiennes and which allowed donors to become, Archangels, Angels, Seraphim’s or Cherubim’s, has topped £8,000.

Presented at the Friends annual Christmas party at the mansion, the evening also included Tudor dancing by local dancers, some of who are pictured.

Also in the picture is Chairman of The Friends Of Ipswich Museums, Richard Wilson.

The Friends of Ipswich Museums is an organisation formed to support Colchester and Ipswich Museums bringing exhibitions to the town, the current Wolsey’s Angels exhibition is drawing exhibits from the National Portrait Gallery and the National Archives.

Friends of FOIM help towards Exhibitions, acquisitions and conservation.

They hold tours, events and talks. People can still give to the appeal which continues by writing to Denise or the chairman or by going to the Total Giving page from their website www.foim.org.uk/angels
