The Dr K B McManus Memorial Fund was established in 2006 by a group of friends of the late Dr Kathleen Bridget McManus.
The purpose of the fund is to perpetuate and honour the memory of Dr McManus by providing financial assistance for those affected by mental ill health to engage in arts-related activities, in the belief that involvement in creative pursuits can help build self esteem and a sense of individuality - both of which contribute significantly to mental health and well-being.
