The Fiorentini Foundation runs fantastic theatre and film schools for 7-18 year olds in north and east London on a not-for-profit basis. The first school opened in 2001 as a Prince's Trust business and the organisation has gone from strength to strength, teaching to a very high standard and producing a brilliant annual variety show at the Hackney Empire theatre.
It is a joy to see Fiorentini children growing in confidence, wisdom and expertise with each year they attend the school. You can read more about Anna Fiorentini herself on page 11 here.
Please donate generously to my 2012 London Marathon run. I'm very old, my knees are complaining and I need all the encouragement I can get - and the money will go to an outstanding good cause.
