On 1st August, members of the Allenton Big Local partnership group attended the UpBeat Community Dance summer school performance at Merrill Academy. It was great to see such energy, creativity and enthusiasm from the young dancers. There were some great performances!
Allenton Big Local funding enabled 48 young people from the Allenton Big Local area to attend the summer school. Big Local funding also allowed 12 young people from the project area to see a performance at the Royal Albert Hall. In all, £912 of funding was awarded to Upbeat Community Dance through the Allenton Big Local Community Chest scheme.
The Community Chest is currently open for a new round of funding and applications are welcome from groups and organisations within the Allenton Big Local area. Check the ‘How to Apply’ page on our website for further details. The deadline for receiving applications for the current round of funding is 30 September 2014.
