Private cash cannot plug arts gap, says Mathew Prichard

One of Wales' most generous donors to the arts said it was not the role of private sponsors to plug the gaps left by cuts in public funding.

Mathew Prichard, the grandson of novelist Agatha Christie, donates the royalties from some of her work to art projects in Wales.

Last year, the Arts Council of Wales warned groups not to rely on its grants after a further funding cut.

But Mr Prichard said private sponsors could not fund on their own.
