Do you love Christmas? Guess what, so do we!
For the past 3 years, with your help, we have saved Christmas. This year, we need your help, to help us, to help you, save Christmas.
Confused? Let us explain.
In previous years the delightful people at Plymouth City Centre Company have sponsored the Grotto, but, like all good things, that has come to an end. This year, in order to produce the Grotto, we need a little extra Christmas cheer, and we are hoping that you may be able to help in any way you can.
You may be asking yourself, why is it so important for the Grotto to continue? Apart from the obvious Christmas cheer. The Radiant Christmas Grotto is produced by the team at Effervescent and each year the profits are put back into the good work that Effervescent do.
Effervescent is a charity, that work with children, young people and vulnerable adults to create extraordinary art works which simultaneously help build confidence, boost emotional resilience, spark imaginations and trigger the formation of new networks and relationships. Effervescent has developed a national reputation for delivering outstanding successful solutions to difficult social challenges, from re-engaging young people not in education, employment and training (NEETS) and supporting young people with mental ill health to recover more faster and fully, to safeguarding the emotional welfare of looked after children and young people.
The Frightfully Charming Crowdfunding video was written and directed by Pom (Sam Pomeroy), filmed by Tim Mills, with Abigail Netcott on the boom, Charlotte Robinson, Matt Keast & Rose Webber as our Frightfully Charming Deer. Thank you to those actors that donated their time towards this project.
