Appeal focus: a new projector for Sheffield's Showroom Cinema.

"Showroom is committed to breaking down barriers and creating pathways for continuous learning and growth in the ever-evolving landscape of creative industries."

"If it were not for supporters like yourself providing financial aid in the form of grants and ongoing contributions, we would simply not be able to run our charity and enable our vital and much-needed work to continue. For this, we offer our deepest gratitude."

Charity of the month - Strand Arts Centre

Strand Arts Centre delivers a diverse programme of creative and cultural activity to improve the social mobility and quality of life for the people of East Belfast and beyond. It occupies and preserves Northern Ireland's only surviving traditional art-deco cinema. Its programme has a focus on film but also includes theatre and music, both live performances & skills development workshops. The Strand is an inclusive, shared space, proud of its economically, socially & politically diverse audience.

"Localgiving has been fantastic in providing a capable online fundraising platform that is easy to setup, user friendly and allows us to claim Gift Aid. It has also meant we’ve had access to extra fundraising opportunities and grants such as Magic Little Grants and more recently the National Grid community fund." -
