Bridging Arts accounts 2017 to 2018

We operate on a shoestring and are far too small to post our accounts up on the charity commissioners website.
But we do produce annual accounts and a report which should be of interest to supporters.  Click on the following link to read our latest annual accounts and report: Bridging Arts annual report 2017-18 .
Very many thanks to all our supporters and our local Trustees who have worked so hard over the past 12 months.

More dance in Hammersmith

It was great to see Italian dancer Simone Sistarelli again yesterday (29 January 2019) for another dance class with people attending the Elders' Project at the Masbro Centre in Hammersmith, London.
Visit the Bridging Arts website to watch a short clip.
Simone started with warm-up exercises then moved on to dance.
"Research shows that dance is a bit like medecine," he said. "You take pills twice a day to get better - you should dance twice a day. That way, you'd really feel the benefit. It's important to practise, just like in any other field."
We are fortunate to have received funding from Localgiving's Magic Little Grants for this final class in a series.
This is the final class for the time being. But we're hoping to find funding for more as the benefits were so obvious, and everyone enjoyed it so much.
