A Theatre Trip for Every Child

On Friday 15th June a team of Albany Staff will head for Dartmoor where they will face the challenge of their lives. 

The 10-strong team have embarked on a rigorous, military style training, led by the Commando Temple in Deptford, London, who have very generously offered their time and expertise in-kind, to be ready for a loaded, marathon walk. They have promised the team will be be race ready - we think they've taken on a bigger challenge than our staff! 

Covering 26 miles in just 2 days, the two teams will be carrying 130kg. After the first grueling day of conquering ten of Dartmoor's Tors, they will wild camp under the stars before embarking on the final furlong. 

Our 'Theatre Trip For Every Child' campaign aims to make sure every 5 year old in Lewisham gets to experience the magic of theatre this year, potentially for the first time. 

We are asking the people to come together and show your support by donating to this campaign to keep us motivated when times get tough - which we are promised by the Master of Madness Rob at Commando Temple that they will!

Many children living in Lewisham are unable to experience arts and cultural activity due to barriers including cost and travel. It is proven that theatre has a hugely positive impact on the future lives of these youngsters; it promotes wellbeing, encourages neural connections and helps them see outside the box, not to mention nurturing their creative imaginations. 

Wish the team luck!
