Why we need your help

IT'S HELEN’S 40th BIRTHDAY THIS MONTH

AND HER INSPIRATION LIVES ON!

 TIME TO CELEBRATE!

THF40for40!

LET’S RAISE £40,000

by NEW YEAR’S EVE THIS YEAR!

Funds raised will establish a special Arts Recovery Fund from April onwards that Teignbridge primary secondary and special schools can access to boost their arts work so badly affected by the pandemic. 

Schools could: 

  • bring in professional artists for arts-week workshops
  • buy in much-needed arts resources
  • devise a creative whole-school arts project
  • mount a major school production

Schools themselves individually would decide what arts activity would have the greatest impact.

Back when THF began in 2006, an amazing team of over 100 great friends, family and supporters ran in the British 10K Run in London and collectively raised over £30,000 that launched The Helen Foundation on its mission.

Now, in its 16th year, can you help THF achieve something equally ambitious and continue to support thousands of young people to “dare to dream”?

We can’t run again in London just yet, but could you come up with a donation that encompasses the numbers 4, 40, 444, 4000 - whatever you can manage!  

Maybe set yourself your own creative challenge and get sponsored to rasie your donation?  Of course, any donation of any size would be very gratefully received and used to benefit young people in Teignbridge with terrific arts experiences and new opportunities to meet their own ambitions in the arts.
