Giving Tuesday success
Thu 1 Dec 2016
This week’s Giving Tuesday was a big success, with more than £1,300 raised for The Marlowe Theatre Development Trust’s Creative Opportunities Fund.
It was the first time The Marlowe has taken part in the international fundraising day (introduced as an antidote to Black Friday), making us one of the first major regional venues in the country to do so.
The money was raised in a variety of ways (bucket collections before and after the day’s two performances of Dick Whittington, raffles, donations), and will be used to help share the magic of theatre with children from disadvantaged backgrounds and those in care.
Helena Barber, Head Of Fundraising Development, was delighted with the amount raised and thanked everyone who contributed: "It was great to see our customers, staff and the wonderful Dick Whittington cast coming together to help children and young people experience theatre – some for the very first time. Thank you, all."
