As a youth-led charity and creative home for young theatre-makers in Banbury and the surrounding areas, we reach 80 young people each week on a regular basis, through inclusive drama workshops at Banbury College. Working alongside our community partners on outreach and inclusion programmes such as 'Amplify', we help to ensure that every young person has an opportunity to make friends, be themselves and express their creativity.
We know times are particularly hard and that many of the families we serve are struggling. Following months of covid-19 lockdowns, and now the challenges of the cost of living crisis, our young people need opportunities to come together, have fun and develop skills more than ever.
Support through targeted funding and donations from the public make it possible for CTC to offer free and low cost programmes to young people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to take part.
If you are able to donate:
£5 this Christmas will guarantee a disadvantaged young person a place on our ‘Play in a Day’ workshops.
£10 will contribute towards a young person attending our three-day holiday programmes
£25 contributes towards a young person taking part in a ‘Play in a Week’ project
£60 enables a young person to take part in CTC workshops for a whole term
We know that times are challenging and that many will want to contribute to this appeal but be unable to. If this is you, we understand. Please share this post to help spread the word, enabling CTC to support young people in 2023 and beyond.
Merry Christmas from the team.
