Museums Sheffield Wills Month

© Andy Brown

Join us at Graves Gallery this October for free Will advice

By writing a Will, you can help secure the future of your loved ones. Once those closest to you are taken care of, a gift in your Will can help ensure that the museums and galleries you love continue to thrive.

This October, in partnership with Wake Smith Solicitors, we invite you to join us at Graves Gallery for two specially-curated events. Together we will explore Sheffield’s visual arts collection and see examples of works on paper not currently on display. Hear from our curators how acquisitions like Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry’s Comfort Blanket (2014) have been made possible thanks to the support of individuals such as J G Graves.

Weds 9 Oct, 5.30–7.30pm

Donating at a Funeral Service

One way to celebrate the life of a loved one is to ask family and friends to make a donation to a charity that was meaningful to them in their lifetime.
