Our students pay a nominal fee for each session that they attend. These fees go some way to meeting our costs, but the majority of our funding comes in the form of grants that we have applied for and from money that we have raised ourselves.


We have a fundraising meal at the Maharaja Indian restaurant on 25th October. We will be there from about 7pm and you can eat any time from 7.30pm as it is an eat and much as you like buffet, with a freshly cooked starter whenever you arrive. It's just £17 per head for adults and £10 for under 18s. Halloween outfits encouraged. Click here for details.


We raised nearly £250 with our 4 hour long slime workshop and arts and crafts activities at Leigh Community Centre during October half-term. We were joined by 130 children!  You can find our slime recipe here.
