Rose Theatre Kingston has raised over £6,000 for local charities, including over £2,000 for our newly announced Rose Youth Theatre Bursary scheme. Throughout the run of Alice in Winterland, the Rose collected each week for a different charity.
The charities chosen were Love Kingston, a local charity appeal which raises money to support charities and good causes across the Royal Borough of Kingston; Diana Award's Anti-Bullying Campaign, which works across a number of different projects aimed at reducing bullying in schools; StreetInvest, a global charity which exists to create positive sustainable change for children who live or work on the streets; and the Rose Youth Theatre Bursary, a new scheme which will allow disadvantaged children and teenagers the opportunity to participate in the Rose’s youth theatre programmes by providing extra support to them and their family.
The Rose wishes all the charities involved the very best for 2018. If any local charities wish to put themselves forward to be considered for donations during our next Christmas show, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
