The Fibbersley Foundation was set up in 2002 to provide financial support for the work of two artists, Sharon Hall Shipp and Richard Shipp. Originally funded by two family bequests, the assets of the Foundation have since been bolstered by other legacies and investments. Funds have enabled the purchase of materials and equipment, attendance at courses and art events, travel in the UK and Europe, exhibitions and the purchase of work by other artists. The Foundation is run as an unincorporated association.
The artists would like to thank the following major benefactors for making this possible:
Frederick George Hall
Marie Kathleen Pritchard
Edward Ronald Shipp
Joan Elizabeth Doye
