GENEROUS ALUMNUS HELPS MOVE TO THE ARTS CENTRE
Gift from Professor David and Leigh Teece
The University of Canterbury received a substantial donation to support the relocation the James Logie Memorial Collection of classical antiquities to the Arts Centre in central Christchurch. UC alumnus Professor David Teece and his wife, Leigh Teece, donated funds to support the refurbishment of the old Chemistry Building, part of which now houses the James Logie Memorial Collection of classical antiquities. A portion of the funds is being held in an endowment for the conservation of the Collection’s antiquities as well as the purchase of further pieces.
In recognition of the Teece family’s generous donation, the University has named the museum in their honour. Find out more.
