FOR OUR MEMBERS: Watts Gallery Trust - Smith Greenfield insurance partnership

Watts Gallery Trust is delighted to announce its partnership with Smith Greenfield, a specialist and leading Surrey-based insurance broker. As a result of this collaboration, members of the Exhibition Circle, Patron, Adopt a Watts and Friend schemes can benefit from expert advice and potential premium savings on Home and Contents insurance and on specialist insurance for Art, Jewellery and Collections – and help Watts Gallery Trust to raise funds.

This tailored insurance opportunity for our members has been specially created for homeowners who have contents and valuables over £75,000 and is only available through an independent specialist broker. Smith Greenfield is committed to delivering a personal service and will provide a thorough review of your insurance needs. Smith Greenfield also offers an excellent and empathetic claims service should the need arise, providing peace of mind.

Using Smith Greenfield will also help Watts Gallery Trust to raise funds. For every insurance policy taken up by a member of a Watts Gallery membership scheme, Smith Greenfield will donate an amount equivalent to 10% of the premium to us, and 5% for every subsequent renewal. This will help us not only in this current crisis but will also build a sustainable revenue for the future. To discuss your home insurance needs and arrange for a quotation please visit smithgreenfield.co.uk or contact Steve Smith directly using steve.smith@smithgreenfield.co.uk or call 0208 603 3730.

This wonderful offer of support comes at a critical time for Watts Gallery Trust. You will be aware that the Trust temporarily closed Watts Gallery – Artists' Village in March in accordance with government guidelines. The current situation is affecting many charities, and for us, the loss of income from visitor admissions, shop, tea shop, commercial gallery, tours and events puts our charity at great risk. Based on a four-month closure, we face a deficit of at least £300,000 this year. Your on-going support is greatly appreciated.

Speaking on behalf of Watts Gallery Trust, Director Alistair Burtenshaw said, “ These are very challenging times for everybody, and especially charities like ours that rely on welcoming visitors to our site. The partnership with Smith Greenfield is therefore very good news indeed. It is my great pleasure to be able to promote their expertise to our members; and I am extremely grateful to them for agreeing to support Watts Gallery Trust is this way."
