Double Your Donations!
From 10am on Tues 27th October until 9.59am on Tues 3rd November 2020

A short appeal from Agent Kahlo of the CIA (Company of International Artists). This is the Localgiving link. Thank you!

We're aiming to raise £7,000 of funding this week to continue providing children at Fouracres Primary in Withywood with creative projects they can enjoy at home every school holiday in 2021.

Over 80 children at Fouracres have been receiving CIA (Company of International Artists) creative missions from us every school holiday since the summer, and we'd love to be able to continue next year!

Any donations of £75 or under given to us between 10am on Tuesday 27th October and 9.59am on Tuesday 3rd November will be automatically doubled thanks to the Localgiving Coronavirus Match Fund. 

"I've received a CIA pack via my daughter's school and I just wanted to extend my thanks to you directly. I was absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you put in each box. We have started mission 1 and my 6 year old is loving it. What a lovely thing to do. Thank you again, you've been very generous." (Parent)
