Today (Friday 8 April) the museum was presented with an exceptionally generous gift from Ava Argent.  Ava recently turned five years old and her father, Alan, suggested that instead of having lots of gifts from her friends that everyone who came to her fifth birthday party should donate money to help raise funds for Tenby Museum and Art Gallery.

Ava came up this morning with her dad, her cousin Leo and her grandmother, well-known local artist Olivia Argent and presented the donation to Mike Brew, Vice Chairman of Trustees.

Mike said, “This is an exceptionally generous gift from Ava and I would like to thank her, her family and her friends, who gave so kindly on her birthday and for thinking of us.”
