This year, Z-arts is running a Festival Appeal that aims to offer a magical Christmas trip to the theatre to every Manchester child in care. By asking for donations from the public and working with a variety of support organisations, Z-arts will offer children in care or who have experience of being in care a free night out at the theatre with their foster carers and/or support workers. All the young people will enjoy free arts and craft activities before being whisked away into a hilarious and heart-warming re-imagining of Black Beauty.
Z-arts is taking on the national Big Give Christmas Challenge to make the Festive Appeal as successful as possible. Between Tuesday 27 November and Tuesday 4 December, every donation made to the Z-arts Festive Appeal through the Big Give website will be doubled, so the impact of one donation will have twice the effect.
Gemma Rooke, Z-arts’ Development Manager, says “Christmas is a time to have fun, feel festive and create memories to last a life time, we want to make this happen for some of Manchester’s most vulnerable young people. Many families see Christmas as a time to go on adventures, spend quality time together and have fun. We believe that all children should have this opportunity and Z-arts is the perfect place for this to happen. It’s not just a night at the theatre – it’s an experience that could inspire and shape young minds.”
Any donation you are able to make is gratefully received and will help us make happy memories that will last a life time. Donations for the Big Give Christmas Challenge must be done through their website.
