Glastonbury Festival is a substantial source of fundraising for the Glastonbury charity

While Glastonbury’s taking its traditional year off in 2018 may be sad news for some, for others, it may be a matter of life and death.

Children’s World was founded in 1981, by Arabella Churchill with the mission “to provide educational, social and emotional benefits to all children, with particular focus on special needs, Children’s World delivers unique film and drama based workshops in a variety of settings in the UK and internationally.”

While December 2017 marked the 10th anniversary of Ms Churchill’s passing, the lack of a Glastonbury Festival in 2018 has left the charity in a “serious financial crisis” – according to a post published on the Glasto Zombies Instagram account.

Friends of Arabella Churchill – Children’s World needs you! December 2017 was the 10th anniversary of Bella’s passing and we have been proud to continue her charity’s work and ideals onwards and upwards. We continue to provide original and unique workshops for children of all abilities across the UK as well as delivering programs in partnership with NGO’s working with children, families and communities affected by war and natural/man made disaster worldwide. However, the absence of a Glastonbury Festival this year (our major source of fund raising) has left the charity in a serious financial crisis – with the very real possibility of having to close in 2018. We do not want this to happen and hope you feel the same way. You can help in a number of ways – here are just a few! 1: Direct donation via this link: https://localgiving.org/charity/childrensworld/ 2: We are holding a special auction at The Swan Hotel, Wells in March 2018 and are looking for some interesting special lots that we can sell. 3: You’re a talented bunch of folk on this page – any benefit gigs to support the charity would be greatly appreciated. If you have any other thoughts or ideas please do get in touch either via email: [email protected] or you can call the office: 01458 833693 This is a crucial time for the future of Children’s World but (as Bella would) – we are determined to get through this with your help and support! Thank you for reading 🙂 #donate #charity #glastonburyfestival #theatreandcircus #childrensworld #arabellachurchill
