Weʼre raising £10,000 to FFF (Funds For Freelancers). A financial resource for actors, creatives, ushers working in theatre.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We’re living in unprecedented times and like many people I‘m feeling helpless. I talk about it a lot but I genuinly believe that theatre folk are some of the most resilient humans out there. That said, they’re going to need help, now more than ever. We’re built on an industry of zero hour contracts, essentially if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. Like many today I have woke up fearing for my colleagues, our industry, my theatre and myself. When our backs agaisnt the wall we show the world what we‘re really made of. This indutsry has given me a huge amount over the years and now its my turn to do what I can to give back.
The Turbine Theatre is a charity led by an incredible board in Helen Clarkson, Sasha Regan, Sita McIntosh and myself. If you’re in need of financial support then all you need to do is email : firstname.lastname@example.org with a few sentences about your situation. All emails will be kept completely confidential. The board will draw funds every ten days depending on how our fundraising efforts are going and will prioritise donations at their discrestion. It could be a little, it could be a lot. That said, the only way to get through this nightmare is for us all to hold each other up in the hope that lots of small endeavours will make the burden easier to manage.
Look after one another.
