The WORLDwrite Centre has had to stay closed since last March, but that hasn't stopped the charity developing new programmes, arranging Citizen TV training packages and pioneering events. The well attended Freedom Babbleon saw 100 speakers in an 8 hour speakathon remind the world why freedom is essential for humanity to thrive, resulting in over 70 compelling videos. Our online training packages have taken off too and we're improving our experimental offerings as we go. We're grateful to the media professionals too, who've given us their time to assist young participants keen to learn. In short, we're busy, it's full-on and we're now working on a crowd-filmed short documentary on young peoples experience of lockdown.

With burgeoning unemployment, a lost year of face-to-face education, no social life, no travel or chance to live it up, young people deserve every opportunity to develop new skills, get critical and get creative. WORLDwrite has much to offer in these testing times. The charity provides free Citizen TV training, champions challenging ideas and collectively creates films and videos with a pro-human ethos and aspirations to change the world.

According to the guidelines, we can reopen to small groups from April 12th. We'd like to celebrate, but there's a catch, being closed has meant no grants, no paid commissions, no fundraising events, in short, no money to pay our Volunteer Centre rent and bills, never mind fund staff. This is why we're hosting a day of mini-marathons on Saturday 10th April. Twelve of our intrepid young crew have already signed up to run, walk or cycle 5 or 10k. They need your sponsorship to make it worthwhile and help the charity out of a jam. We'd also be delighted if you'd like to do something marathon on the day and join them.

With your support, we can reopen our Volunteer Centre and continue to do exactly that. Our £5000 target will pay for two months Centre rent and bills, we hope its achievable.
