Anonymous donor challenges Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village to raise a further £12,500


Thank you for imagining a great big beautiful bronze sculpture of a colossal horse in the Surrey Hills. Your generosity has allowed us to raise a phenomenal £25,000 and we are humbly and sincerely grateful to you.

Your help has managed to get our horse to the top of the hill, but the race is not over yet. With 5 days to go there is still time to give our horse a fantastic stable and pasture to graze in, thanks to our latest challenge.

An anonymous and very generous donor, impressed by the groundswell of public support for our crowdfunding campaign, has set us the bold challenge of exceeding our target by another £12,500, which they will match £1 for £1. If successful, this would mean that we will have raised a further £25,000, bringing our grand total to £50,000.

With your ongoing support, we can clear these final fences on our canter to the finishing line and ensure accessibility, Art For All, and look to the ongoing care of our four-tonne bronze horse.

You have given so much already and with your continued backing, this landmark for the South East will stand as a visible testament to Watts’s passionate belief that art is for all, regardless of class, gender, ethnicity, and age.
