On 4th June Jack Fletcher and Tim Wright will be setting off on a cycle ride which starts in St Malo and ends, 850 miles later, in Collioure in the South of France. In doing so we would like to
raise some money for The Big House, a fabulous charity where Tim is a trustee.
The Big House works with care leavers who are at a high risk of social exclusion. They engage with people who may have given up on themselves and through the platform of making and participating in theatre, provide an environment where their voices can be heard and they can gain the skills and confidence to turn their lives around.
“Thank you so much for making me feel human again. I don’t feel like I’m just surviving. I feel like I’m living life!”
As a trustee Tim has personally witnessed the journey these vulnerable young people travel during a Big House project. The transformation is fantastic and inspiring. For more on their work please take a look at this video http://thebighouse.uk.com/the-big-house-a-documentary/.
As Sir Lenny Henry said of The Big House:
“Having seen several of the shows ………. I’m convinced that The Big House is plugged into the community in a way that other charities are not. A genuine life transformer, helping the lost to locate a path and stick to it. If you can help Maggie [the CEO] continue her necessary, vital work, please don’t hesitate to do so. The Big House needs you.”
We and The Big House would be extremely grateful for any sponsorship you were able to provide in support of our ride to the South of France.
Jack and Tim
