Founded in 1989, their aims and objectives are to encourage interested members, to support & enhance the Gallery and the collection, as well as develop a wider appreciation of the Gallery and its contents. Both corporate and individual members are welcome.  The Friends have held many exhibitions, raised funds on behalf of the Gallery, helped with restoration of artworks, held workshops, encouraged school groups to visit the Gallery and endeavoured to raise public awareness of this precious asset of East London. At present the Friends have initiated an extensive restoration project for the Gallery building, with expert advice from well-known restoration architects.
