Please Support The Croydon Youth Theatre Organisation

Today we received a note to ask for raffle prizes for the Croydon Youth Theatre Organisation.  I have to admit that I was initially intrigued by the elegant handwriting on the envelope. How could I expect anything less from someone in the art world?

Anyway, I took a look at their site and the CYTO is dedicated to producing live theatre with young people aged 13 to 25 in Croydon.   It provides a way for local people to meet new friends, learn new skills and discover new talents.  Although Croydon Council is providing some funding, they have reduced funding for the tutors, youth workers and admin staff.  Croydon Council basically expect the Theatre to be self-funding.

So, we did our bit and sent off a box of goodies that they can use for their Prize Draw.

If you run a small business and think you contribute a prize to a good cause that helps keep young people motivated, then please contact Debbie Lindsay on
