Trustee Mark Hayton said: “As a charity, we are extremely grateful for legacies such as this generous bequest, which enable us to take forward our work and to invest in capital projects, which in themselves are a lasting memorial. We will think of Gordon, and his generosity, through the creation of our new museum in his memory.”
