Charity Work

 

In January 2018, having established a pattern of performances and a solid following of supporters, we made the decision to start supporting charities and raising funds through ticket sales, a raffle and donations for refreshments.

This Christmas our chosen charity to support is Swindon Carers Centre, specifically Young Carers.

 

Young carers are children who look after someone within their family home who has an illness, a disability, a mental health condition, or substance misuse problem. They undertake practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult on a regular basis. Swindon Carers Centre provides support and respite opportunities, through term-time group and holiday activities, to allow young carers to take a break from their caring responsibilities, and enjoy time being children again. 

All proceeds from this years' raffle will go to Swindon Carers. If you would like to donate a prize for the raffle, please contact us by emailing thecastofstagestruck@gmail.com.

So far we've raised over £8,000 - for the following charities. Here's our donations so far:
