A Gentleman to Remember
In 1958 the late Reginald Mant met Ursula Hulme, our Founder, and she introduced him to an Occupational Therapist at the Middlesex Hospital. Following on from this Reginald began a life’s work of helping disabled people through art. For many years he used similar methods to Conquest Art at the East Surrey Hospital in Redhill. Some of us will remember when, in April 2010, he spoke at our AGM on his experiences – a sincere and sympathetic talk which was appreciated by all our members.
Reginald remained a supporter of Conquest Art until his death in November 2016.
In the past month, we have been informed by the Executor of his Estate that he has generously left a legacy of £4,821 to Conquest Art.
Yes, Reginald Mant was a gentleman who inspired many disabled people and will be remembered by many of us.
