Today we spoke to Lucy Vinen from Porthcawl who's raising money to help save the theatre business. She said 'The Students Saving Our Theatres campaign was designed as a way of raising money for the theatres affected by Covid-19 by uniting as university drama societies around the UK. In 5 weeks from releasing the campaign, we hope to achieve our aim of raising £10,000. As the weeks progress, we will be fundraising by completing fun new challenges each week, with the highlights being shared from different universities.
In raising this money, we also understand how it should be the government's responsibility to save the arts and contribute money to keeping theatres afloat. If you would like to show support for our campaign through means other than donating, then please sign this petition:
