The cash-strapped Manchester Jewish Museum has suffered another setback with its director having to take extended leave because of health concerns.
Stuart Hilton has suspected ligament problems in his spine, making it difficult for him to walk. His absence could jeopardise the museum's financial recovery after a positive initial response to its emergency financial appeal for £5 monthly donations.
"We know we are getting an extra £1,000 income, which is brilliant, but is nowhere near our target of £6,000 a month," Mr Hilton explained.
