LIGHT UP HAC - Fundraising Appeal
You can help us to #LightUpHAC by donating today
On 17th March 2020, COVID 19 meant Helmsley Arts Centre’s stage lights were turned off, the doors were closed and the stage stood still. Overnight we lost our income, which not only supports us to survive, but also the artists, practitioners and freelancers we work with.
As an independent charity it costs us £400 per day to maintain our building and core staff
and another £400 to provide a full programme of arts activities. Although we can now welcome some visitors to HAC, we won’t be able to operate at full capacity for quite some time and full recovery is a long way off. We welcome Government support for the arts, culture and heritage sector and hope we can access some of that funding, but that doesn’t guarantee our long term survival.
We have 90 days to raise £50,000 to cover the losses we have incurred during our closure and ensure that we survive and thrive for our communities.
Become a shining light for HAC by donating today, and take your place in the spotlight with your name on our LIGHT UP HAC Landscape!
As a registered charity we rely solely on public support and generosity to keep open for the community and there are a number of ways you can help us, if your personal situation allows. Thank you so much for your continued support and we hope to be in touch soon with good news.
