By becoming a Patron, you will play a vital role in unlocking the arts for children who need to be inspired the most, whilst also enjoying a number of benefits.

Supporting Children & the Arts is an amazing way to engage communities in need and network with other likeminded individuals who have a passion for education and the arts. I like knowing that my contributions – both financial and time wise – are helping to make a positive difference by levelling the playing field in schools.
