Charity Award

At the Ruskin Society's AGM on 6 February, we were delighted to recognize the Heritage Crafts Association for its work during the pandemic. This has included COVID-19 grants to support craftspeople during this very challenging time. Our Chair, Francis O'Gorman, presented a donation of £100 as a token of the Ruskin Society's gratitude for the HCA's work supporting the craft skills which Ruskin valued so much.
