Castlefield Gallery at the Great Manchester 10k Run

Posted on 16 May 2019

On Sunday 19 May our dedicated Curator, Matthew (Gass) Pendergast is running the 2019 Simplyhealth Great Manchester 10k Run to raise donations towards our Catalyst: Evolve Fund.

We have until August 2019 to reach our £105,000 target when Arts Council England will match pound-for-pound each donation we have raised to ensure Castlefield Gallery remains one North of England’s most active and successful organisations for supporting the career development of artists across the region and further afield.

We have done an incredible job so far and need just £14,356 to close the gap before the deadline and drawdown the full amount from Arts Council England. Sponsor Gass as he pounds the pavement and support Castlefield Gallery to double the donations pound-for-pound.

Donate now by card, Paypal or via a CAF account at

More on our Catalyst: Evolve fundraising

Over the last three decades Castlefield Gallery has become an integral part of the North of England’s cultural fabric and a vital support to artists across the North West and further afield. As a registered charity, Castlefield Gallery’s mission drives our work to focus on artistic and career development for artists, as well as deepening audiences’ relationship to contemporary art. And until August 2019 Castlefield Gallery is a recipient of Arts Council England’s Catalyst: Evolve, which means for a time-limited period Arts Council England will match pound-for-pound each donation to Castlefield Gallery.
