About The Garage Trust (The Chair’s Bursary Fund)
The Garage Trust, registered charity, is raising money to support bursaries for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and challenging circumstances to have the costs of their programme covered in order to participate in Dance, Music or Theatre classes and course at either The Garage, Norwich or The Workshop, King’s Lynn.
The Garage Trust works with young people and their families from a range of challenging circumstances, using the performing arts to change their lives through support and mentoring. Our charitable work focusses around the work in our sites in Norwich and King’s Lynn.
We are raising funding as a legacy for all the work, time and dedication of our outgoing Chair, Maggie Wheeler. The growth and success of the charity in purchasing the freehold of its Norwich site, establishing a flourishing participation programme, launching accredited courses and opening a second site is directly attributed to the hard work and support of this incredible woman.
So The Garage is reaching out to advocates, friends, participants and audiences, asking you to donate, to pay it forward and help us cover the cost of provision for those who are facing significant challenge in their lives.
These donations will support the Trust to establish a fund that will cover the costs of bursaries for many years to come, to remember the work and dedication of our outgoing Chair.
