Since our announcement that a generous Art Fund supporter will be matching every donation made through artfund.org/prospect until midnight tonight, we’ve seen many more people respond to our urgent campaign – bringing our total to 59% of our target. Amazing!
Thank you for spreading the word – you’re part of a fantastic community of people rallying to #SaveProspectCottage.
One supporter you might have seen getting the word out far and wide is costume designer Sandy Powell, who’s been gathering autographs of actors, directors and film world luminaries on a toile suit she’s been wearing to awards parties and ceremonies, including the BAFTAs and, last night, the Academy Awards, where she was nominated for her work on Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman.
Sandy intends to auction the suit to raise money for the campaign; you can hear more about what her friend and mentor Derek Jarman meant to her in our interview, here.
You can channel Sandy by encouraging friends to join the campaign by sharing artfund.org/prospect – and, if you’re posting on social media, you can use the hashtag #SaveProspectCottage.
There’s still time to make double the impact: donations will continue to be matched until midnight tonight.
Could you help us get to 60% tonight?
P.S. If you would like to bid for this amazing star-studded suit, we’d love to hear from you! Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
