Weʼre raising £20,000 to Keep Patricia in Cookham

‘Patricia at Cockmarsh Hill’ is the only Spencer painting of the artist’s second wife in the Stanley Spencer Gallery in Cookham, where it has been on loan for the last 12 years. We now have the opportunity to keep Patricia in Cookham, but ONLY if we can raise AT LEAST £20,000 before the end of 2023.
