A child’s eyes see the world differently. Their curiosity can make a journey into an adventure. They embody possibility, imagination and freedom of thought.
But, society is changing before our eyes and with it too childhood is changing.
Barton Hill, where Travelling Light are based, has the highest number of children aged 0-15 of any ward in Bristol. It also has some of the highest levels of child poverty anywhere in the city. Opportunities for play and creativity are few and far between in a landscape of uncertainty. The few spaces that remain more often than not fall to those who have the resources to seek them out and to access them.
With children facing issues such as poverty, hunger and housing it is easy to forget that in addition to their basic needs, children also deserve to play, create and imagine. These things are also crucial to their wellbeing. Stories transport children beyond the world they live in, sparking their imaginations and igniting their curiosity.
This is why Travelling Light are launching the Yes Let’s Appeal with the aim of raising £50,000 to invest in childhood, and the opportunity for children to make, be part of and experience great stories.
Until 31st August, 2019, every £1 raised will be matched £1 for £1 in money from the treasury. Giving us the potential to double our target and raise an amazing £100,000 to put the creativity back in to childhood in Barton Hill, across Bristol and beyond.
Together we will give children the tools and the power to raise their voices, enabling them to make, share and experience stories that truly speak to them and their generation.
Can we make a change: YES. LET’S.

About the fundraiser
I am raising money for Travelling Light Theatre Company’s Yes Let’s Appeal because I believe that all children deserve to be creative, to play and to be listened to and I want to enable more children to enjoy a creative childhood.
