Theatre of Minds is a project set up to raise funds and awareness for the charity Young Minds – the UKs leading youth mental health charity. Young Minds work with children and young people when they are suffering from a mental health disorder, but equally importantly the charity works to support the families of those children. They run an award winning parents helpline which received 10,000 from concerned parents in 2013 to help people caring for young people through a difficult time.
We are delighted to announce that through ticket sales for Base Layer, collections and online donations we have managed to raise £2200.02 for Young Minds. Thankyou to everyone who has made a contribution to our cause – you are helping us to support young people all over the UK.
BUT we are not done yet! As you can see in this post, the Abbey Theatre in St Albans have invited us to do another performance of Base Layer in September. This will hopefully enable us to spread awareness throughout a wider community and also raise some money to join what we have already raised. Therefore, we have decided that we will be making an official donation to Young Minds in September after the end of the event.
Our crowdfunding page is still open, so if you would like to contribute, you can do so here.
We have been blown away by the reach of this project and delighted that so many people have shown an interest in what we are doing. Thankyou very much for your help, and we hope to continue the work of this theatre company in the future.
