Be an Angel - Vote for Haringey Shed Community Theatre - tell your friends

Haringey Shed needs you!

As an inclusive music theatre, we are very eager to continue offering young people a place to develop theatre and music skills, make friends and have plenty of fun. But to carry on, we need the help of as many people as possible to enable us to keep on going. 

Natwest Community Force funding is a great opportunity for Haringey Shed. As one of hundreds of registered charities, a public vote will decide the winner of a £6,000 award.

All that you need to do to help is place a vote for us; it's as quick as that!

 Simply log on to the website    http://communityforce.natwest.com/project/5247

 We would also appreciate it if you could spread the word to your friends and family so that we have an even bigger chance to winning the award. Please send this on via email, facebook, twitter to all your nearest and dearest and in fact anyone you know!!!

 The deadline is the end of October, so get voting!

 Thank you very much for your help!

 All of us at Haringey Shed xx

Hey OpinioN8 members.

 

I am a staff volunteer with Haringey Shed and wanted to write a quick thank you for posting information about our quest for voters!

 

I want to ask the people of Hornsey and Crouch End to please just click the link and show your support to such a fantastic project.

 

I moved to London in 2010 from Liverpool and was really impressed with the work that Haringey Shed does with bringing together young people from across the area in a fun, safe and inclusive environment. I've been fortunate enough to be working with 'Shed' for over a year now and I've had the opportunity to get to know many young people and see them grow in confidence, inter personal development and enthusiasm for theatre! They get to interact and mix with other young people and they really do have loads of fun.

 

I sit behind a desk all day or go out talking to media agencies in my 'day' job BUT there's nothing that beats the joy of giving up a few hours a week to make life better for young people in the area.  It's such a great satisfaction and real joy to work in such a creative, productive and inspiring environment with young people from all across Haringey.

 

The shows that we put on are of professional quality and it's really a fantastic opportunity for the young people in the area. The main thing is that EVERYONE has a part to play. There's no auditions! No-one is made to feel any less important on the stage, in the wings or in the rehearsal room just because of their background, culture, race or ability. We work together and you see young people become into leaders and inspire and work with each other.

 

Don't believe me? Have a little look at the lovely Alex and some other members of our Youth Theatre group talking about their time with Shed from this promotional VT, filmed a few years back....

 

 

 

I hope I've given you a bit more of a personal understanding into the work of Haringey Shed and hopefully i've encouraged you to give this link a click, sign up and vote for a real LOCAL project.

 

If my written prose has really worked - then why not get in touch with Bizi on the details above and become a volunteer too!

 

On behalf of all at Haringey Shed, I want to thank Adrian and the team at OpinioN8 for promoting this fundraising effort and encouraging other  local people to vote too! Hopefully you can come and see one of our forthcoming productions?
