Weʼre raising £40,000 to ensure the future of the Gallery we need to make major repairs. The floor will collapse in 6 months & the cost is an eye watering amount!

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

Story

We need some help!

The floor of the framing department is likely to collapse within 6 months unless urgent repairs are carried out and the costs are coming in at an eye watering amount! Sadly this is our responsibility under lease. There are a number of other significant building repairs also needed but nothing as urgent as the state of the floor.

Ideally we need to raise around £40,000 – which is a terrifying target.

When we reach £100 - Cupola will hold a staff 'Bake Off' - with customers invited to sample and decide the winner! - Update. We held our staff bake off on Sat 7 September. Sadly we were unable to pick a winner as theere were so many cakes and delicious items to sample people found it hard to choose. However, the snickers chcolate brownies were a definite hit as was my rather gooey chocolate nut fudge cake! Cakes are still available for anyone who wishes to nip down sooner rather than later! Thanks to all who baked!!

When we reach £500, Karen Sherwood will do a 'fancy' dive from the 5 metre platform. Karen is not keen on heights! - Update. I am practicing! Did a dive (not particularly fancy) last Thursday. Will get photo/video evidence. K x

When we reach £1000, Karen, Graham, Pete & Sarah will all jump from the 10 metre platform. NONE of the above are keen on heights and Karen is terrified!! - Update. I am not happy - although delighted at reaching £1000 of course! Ok - I didi it! Staff are still in training but I did it!!

More milestones! Ok. When we reach £2000...I hesitate to make this promise..... I will clean my teenage boys' bedroom!!! Yes two teenagers in one room - I may need a full protection suit, gloves and breathing apparatus but I shall tackle it....

Blimey, you lovely lot, I can hardly keep up. SO, now we are considering our options for the next milestones. We seem to have set the bar rather high, so are having a think....

Love to you all! K x

In 2021, the gallery reaches its 30th anniversary and we would love to be able to feel confident about its long term future, continuing to provide artists space to take risks, have fun and display and sell quality contemporary artwork.

    Thank you to all who came to Cupola's Art Auction at DINA venue on Saturday 26 October. It was a full on marathon but we raised over £5K! Woohoo! However, due to time constraints and my voicebox we couldn't auction everything, and so, many items will now be available via our online auction. See the CPR page of the website for details. You are all completely awesome!! K xx
