For the past 16 years, the Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School has been enabling children to build their confidence, self-esteem and develop invaluable life skills.
It has also provided much-needed respite for children with chaotic home lives, who may be caring for a sick relative or themselves be suffering from a medical condition.
This year we aim to raise £10,000 to provide bursaries for children who are either suffering from or are affected by cancer. Cancer is a devastating disease predicted to affect 2,900,000 people in the UK by 2020. In addition, around 1,600 new cases are diagnosed every year in the UK amongst children aged 0 to 14 years.
Whilst the search for a cure continues, the Anna Fiorentini School is committed to making the lives of children living with or affected by cancer a little bit easier; restoring a sense of fun, purpose and normality.
Every child is entitled to a childhood, and by providing those affected by cancer with places at our part-time school we can help in some small way by giving them a weekly activity they feel engaged with and proud of.
Donate directly to our 2018 campaign supporting children affected by cancer (we can claim GiftAid on donations) or support us by joining in our sponsored Lip Sync Battle on 24th March 2018 to help raise funds (see details of this event on the linked event page).
Donate and Support us
We have been supporting less privileged children access our professional training, helping them increase in confidence, self-esteem and life skills since 2001. This is thanks to a few small grants, in-house fundraising events and donations.
Our school is a not for profit organisation and any donations go directly to the children. However, we also have a charitable arm The Fiorentini Foundation [registered charity number 1140414] making it easier for companies to support us.
Apart from donations other ways you can support us include:
Visiting our charity website www.fiorentinifoundation.org, and encouraging work colleagues to recommend us as charity of the year.
Hire our Performance Troupe. Do you have a corporate event approaching? Why not get our Performance Troupe to provide the entertainment in exchange for a small donation to the charitable arm. For the Troupe to continue providing free performances in the community we need support.
To make an immediate donation or setup a sponsored fundraising site, please go to the BT MyDonate site for the Fiorentini Foundation.
