We are delighted to let you know that last week we were able to donate another £1000 to another great Sheffield charity - Under the Stars!
Steve had the pleasure of visting them on Friday to make the donation.
Under the Stars is an arts and events charity for people with learning disabilities and/or autism. They deliver drama and music workshops four days a week from their base in Hillsborough. They give people with learning disabilities and/or autism the opportunity to be creative, learn new skills, express themselves and make sure that they are seen and heard in places where people with a disability are often underrespresented. They work with groups to create original music and theatre about issues that matter to them and regularly perform and gig at places like The Crucible, Sheffield Hallam University Performance Lab, Yellow Arch, The Greystones and Tramlines Festival. In addition they run regular nightclubs for people with learning disabilities and/or autism and their friends at The Leadmill.
Our donation will be used to buy new camera equipment for their drama groups to learn new skills in film making and acting for camera. Their music groups will also learn film making skills to make music videos and enabling them to document and share their live shows and performances in a way that they are currently unable to do. It will help them to share their work digitally showcasing what people with disabilities are capable of to a much wider audience base.
Thank you again for all your support - keep your eyes peeled for where your kind donations will go next...
Best wishes for a great week!
Dan & The Sheffield 1000 Team
