Happy birthday to us!
Today marks 5 years since the YPPT became a registered charity. In that time, we've completed over 50 projects involving over 1600 children and young people in 5 counties, helping them build confidence and resilience as they exceed everyone's expectations of what they can achieve.
We are so grateful to every single one of our supporters who has made this possible - we absolutely could not have done this without you!
If you want to help create another five years of projects, why not consider a regular donation? Just £5/month would give 4 children everything they need to create their own amazing marionette, and memories that will last a lifetime!
Back in the spring, we received a grant from the FORE to run a script writing competition for secondary school pupils to help them stay creative and give them something meaningful to do in lockdown. We are delighted today to announce the first three winners of this competition and their scripts, which will join our library and be offered to schools from September 2021. Congratulations to all three of them!
