To help make Barnet even better for those who live, work and study here.
Spread The Joy - access to creative learning and arts for all. This Autumn we are fundraising to distribute 100 festive packs to 5 partners: Rays of Sunshine, New Citizens Gateway, Homestart Barnet, Solace Women’s Aid, Noah's Ark Children's Hospice. The packs (20 for each partner) will include: - Festive treat packs with chocolates, dried fruit and nuts - A theatre game Partners will also receive 20 free tickets they can pass on to families for a theatre visit, and will be able to refer a young person to our Easter and/or Summer Camps on a free place. All beneficiaries will need to be families where children are in receipt of Free School Meals.
