Fosters Solicitors LLP are delighted to announce their support for Norwich Puppet Theatre's Passport to Puppetry Project. This scheme enables disadvantaged children to access magical, creative and cultural experiences in Norfolk.
Puppet theatre shows and interactive workshops can greatly improve children's health, well-being, sense of aspiration and ambition. However, many young people live in financially restricted households or face other challenging circumstances which make it hard to access these creative experiences. Those growing up in rural areas of Norfolk can also face transport challenges to access arts and cultural experiences. This scheme aims to overcome these barriers and allow each Passport holder to attend at least 4 shows/workshops a year.
On Wednesday 9th October, a launch event for the scheme was held at Norwich Puppet Theatre with guests from Norfolk Chamber of Commerce.
Elinor Goodhead, Legal Assistant in Fosters Business & Commercial Team, who attended the event on behalf of Fosters commented: "It was great to spend an evening at the theatre learning more about the work they do. I hope it will be the start of spreading the word to other companies, colleagues and friends, and that this can help the scheme achieve its aim of issuing 25 passports!"
Jamie Arnall, Partner and Head of Business & Commercial Team, said: "We are delighted to fund the first Passport to Puppetry. At Fosters, we pride ourselves on supporting the local community and smaller charities which, whilst they may not receive the same level of recognition, make a real difference in Norfolk."
"We understand from our clients that local families can face many challenges and we were particularly interested in supporting NPT's work to help children and young people who would not otherwise have the opportunity to take part in creative activities."
