Due to Covid-19, the Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School has been forced to temporarily close its doors for the first time in 20 years. The school offers affordable access to performing arts training and supports hundreds of inner city children who, like I did, have difficult home lives and rely on classes for much needed fun and respite. The reality is that without urgent financial support, the school may be forced to close its doors permanently.

In a bid to support the survival of the school, I'll be cycling up 20 of the highest hills where I live in south east London, including the notorious Shooter's Hill (the highest peak in London at 407 ft above sea level), Canonbie Road and Horniman Gardens. I don't actually like cycling very much (I bought a bike to impress a guy who was v into Tour de France) but I dislike the thought of the school that did so much for me being forced to close.

The school supports around 540 children per school term and a further 4,000 people per year through performances in care homes, hospital and the wider community. It provides up to 85 bursaries a year for the most vulnerable children and currently offers places to 15 children with or affected by cancer.

Any donation you're able to make to help keep the school going would be hugely appreciated by all the students and staff!
