To be reading this section, I would imagine you feel as we do that every child should have the opportunity to be involved in the arts, not only to develop their self-esteem, performing skills and confidence but for the sheer fun and the building of new friendships.

So how could you help?

You could sponsor a child to join us for a week’s Summer School, where they would learn a complete show ending the week with a performance for their family and friends to watch: £75 – £95

Or you could assist a child with their Exam fees: £25 – £120.

You may even wish to Sponsor a Show by covering the cost of advertising, scenery, costumes, performing rights. Wouldn’t It look good to see your name on our billboards, programmes and website saying sponsored by……? The cost of this could be anything from £100 – £1,000 depending on the show.

Sponsoring a school is a great option and by far the most beneficially rewarding way to reach the maximum amount of children. The impact on the school is tremendous and I would be delighted to share the evidence of this with you.

Our outreach work with schools sees us going out into the community to deliver performing arts workshops for school children in Hull and the surrounding area. Even just one morning a week at a school would give 90 children the opportunity to develop their skills. And believe me it costs far less than you would imagine.

One morning a week, covering 3 classes and approximately 90 children for the full academic year, costs £3,500 to a sponsor. The impact this has on the children involved is truly phenomenal, and indeed inspirational.

If you are interested in discussing the opportunities to work with NAPA further, why not give me a call. Not only does NAPA reap the rewards as a charity of being armed with the resources to reach out to another school, but sponsors themselves benefit from building on their own links with the community and the PR opportunities that present themselves along the way.
