The Make A Difference Trust has launched a Coronavirus Crisis Fund specifically to assist people in the Theatre Industry who have supported us in our fundraising:
For people in the theatre industry who have helped this charity on any of our fundraising shows who meet the criteria below, we will look to provide small pockets of financial assistance up to £200 to meet unexpected expenses that will cause hardship. This is available to those who are experiencing hardship due to theatre closures as a direct result of Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
Criteria to apply:
We will prioritise those who have supported the Make A Difference Trust in the past at one of their fundraising events including West End Bares, West End Eurovision, A Mad Drag Night, West End Christmas, MAD Cabarets and West End Bares Calendar.
The Crisis Fund is there to support unforeseen emergencies and should only be used when all other avenues for support have been considered. The Fund cannot replace statutory funding.
The Crisis Fund is designed to provide support to those theatre industry members who are experiencing unexpected financial distress as a direct result of Coronavirus COVID-19 and which threaten to impact on well-being, either physically or mentally.
