The One Hundred and One Dalmatians which ran from 30 November until 13th January, the theatre appealed for 101 businesses to give hundreds of young people the chance to visit the theatre last Christmas.
The aim of the 101 business appeal was to provide light relief around the Christmas period for local disadvantaged children and families, for whom the festive period is a particularly difficult time. With this 108 businesses supported The REP's appeal, and TLO were pleased to be one of them. All together the appeal raised a fantastic £34, 725.75 which provided over 1300 tickets for local children and families.
This project was formed as part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge and as a result a number of the donations were doubled!
TLO are very pleased to be one of 101 businesses in Birmingham to help The Birmingham Repertory Theatre in their appeal to provide tickets for local disadvantaged children and families this Christmas to see their Christmas production of ‘The Hundred And One Dalmatians’
The recipients include terminally ill children, families living in sheltered accommodation and children with severe learning disabilities.
TLO were very pleased to support the LawWorks and Bar Pro Bono Unit's first ever joint carol concert at Temple Church on Monday evening which was attended by around 430 people.
The event raised over £17,000 which will be shared between the two charities equally and which will be used to help many more vulnerable people who need free legal help.
