The Friends of the Frederick Parker Foundation is a group of members formed in 2011 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Foundation. Its main purpose is to support the purchase of new items for the collection. Each member pays an annual donation of £50.00 plus Gift Aid. All members are automatically entered for an annual prize draw, with the winners announced at the Annual Lecture and Dinner in March. The prize is substantial, a case of 12 bottles of Veuve Cliquot champagne. One case is drawn for every 25 members.
Currently, there are just over 50 members and we are very keen to welcome new members. The Friends are a vital support group for the collection, helping us to care for the chairs and encourage their use by pupils and students, some of whom will be the life-blood of the furniture industry in the future, and of course to add to the collection with suitable new items. Our priority is to build a strong selection of 20th century and more recent chairs to ensure the collection is relevant to design students.
