News from the Arts Foundation and its award recipients from 20 June 2012

This week is volunteering week.  The Arts Foundation would like to take the opportunity to thank our Trustees and Governors, who all volunteer their time to help to make the Arts Foundation a success.  We would also like to thank Patrons and other supporters who assist the Arts Foundation, hosting events and helping us in the office.
