COVID – Community fundraising initiatives

We are pleased to announce that we are working on couple of fundraising initiatives supporting the local community to combat both short and medium-term challenges.

Art and Talent Contest supporting Food banks 

The contest could be a great way to channel children’s and wider community perspectives and feelings into fun and art and to have a place where audiences could see it. The contest details will be shared separately later this week. This is our medium-term effort to help and contribute culturally within the local community but also raise funds for charities in Devon and Cornwall who are and will have an instrumental role to play in the recovery ahead. 
Watch out for our next newsletter for further details. 

Raising funds for Food Banks

While we work on the contest details, the trustees in recent meetings decided to seek a donation via an open call from its members towards supporting ‘foodbank’ with an aim to support those underprivileged members of the wider community, including students who have been facing challenging situations due to job losses and other tough circumstances. If you would like to contribute towards this cause please feel free to donate using the details below by 10th June 2020.
