Catcote Academy Performing Arts Fund

£12,130 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 208 people in 13 months
All students at Catcote Academy have learning difficulties, Autism, social, emotional, mental health difficulties, communicative difficulties and/or life limiting conditions.
The aim of Performing Arts at Catcote Academy is to give our students opportunities to express themselves and break down the barriers that hold them back.
We live in Hartlepool, one of the most deprived areas in the UK, where opportunities are limited and funding is sparse.
We do what we can but we want to do more to inspire our amazing students.
We have created a wonderful LipDub video to raise awareness and raise some fund to go towards future projects.
As you can see our students who struggle with so many things, had so much fun making the video and we want to give them more opportunities to do this.
Money raised will go towards putting on more performances including a musical next Spring/Summer featuring our 6th Form Performing Arts Students, following the huge success of our musical this year.
Please give what you can and help put a smile on their faces!

We are amazed by the unprecedented response we've had to the video and never dreamed we'd reach our goal, never mind so quickly! Thank you so much for your support!
We have decided to raise our target to £2000 so we can fund even more projects for Catcote Performing Arts students. Please keep sharing with your friends and let's see if we can raise another 1,000 in another week!
Thank you once again for your support, you have done an amazing thing!
Mr Rick Kitson,
Performing Arts,
