Pensioner backs Peacock with £10,000 gift
A PENSIONER has donated £10,000 towards an under-threat contemporary arts centre in Aberdeen.
Peacock Visual Arts had its plan to build a new £13million centre in Union Terrace Gardens put on hold, after businessman Sir Ian Wood announced his ambitious scheme to transform the city centre two years ago.
Retired Aberdeen woman Renee-Margaret Slater, who lives in a one-bedroom flat, said she made the donation because she believes in “a green city centre”.
