Support a team of swimmers as they attempt to cross the Solent on Sunday 23 September to save Limnerslease, the home and studio of G.F. and Mary Watts, led by the Director of Watts Gallery.

This gruelling 3-mile swim, in one of the busiest stretches of water on the South Coast, aims to raise funds to rescue the only 19th-century artists’ studio with its collection still intact.

Watts Gallery Trust has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy the remarkable Grade II listed Arts & Crafts building, at risk of being sold. Your donation will help restore the studios, offer more learning to schools, reach out to disadvantaged groups and offer paid apprenticeships to local people not in education, employment or training.
