Everyone at Hall For Cornwall was saddened to hear of the death of Alexander Patrick CBE, DL on 18 April.
Alex, together with his wife, Val, had been a close friend and supporter of ours for many years. He championed the arts in Cornwall and was passionate about our transformation, which he knew would help young people realise a brighter future through live performance. Alongside this, his commitment to widening access provision, means that our vision will absolutely ensure diverse audiences both on stage and off.
Alex understood the power of collective change and encouraged many others to donate through his major contribution to our Big Give Christmas Challenges. We will always be indebted to him. He leaves a lasting legacy, not only for his investment in our future, but for his immeasurable support of the arts both within Cornwall and across the UK.
Our thoughts are with Val and his family at this time.
