How you made a difference last year
As the charity which supports the Harris, donations to the Friends of the Harris make a big impact.
In 2019 your donations and membership subscriptions provided £10,000 to support a range of Harris work from exhibitions to family activities, helping local artists to display their work to showing off the Harris’ fabulous historic book collection.
The Friends’ funding comes from our fantastic members and from the many generous donations we receive from Harris supporters – online and through the cash and contactless donations points at the Harris. Every penny supports the people who matter – Harris visitors. If you’re a member or have made a donation – or both – you’ve made a big difference.
The Friends also apply for grants on behalf of the Harris. At the moment we’re raising money for #HarrisYourPlace which will benefit thousands of local people and visitors to Preston.
