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 will be back at Leigh Community Centre on the afternoon of 29th May with Peter Rabbit themed activities. Contact  Leigh Community Centre to book.





We have a fundraising meal at East Restaurant in Southend on 31st May, 7pm to 7.30pm. Eat as much as you like oriental buffet and freshly cooked meat, fish and vegetables from the tepanakyi grill. It's £14 for adults and £7 for children under 1.4m - all welcome. Click here for details.




Become a Co-op Member for just £1 and until October 2018 The Art Ministry will receive 1% of the cost of any Co-op branded items that you buy. You will get 5% cash back! Make sure that you choose The Art Ministry as your "local cause". You can join up here.


We have already benefited from being part of the Co-op Local Community Fund from October 2016 to April 2017 and May 2017 to November 2017. In April The Art Ministry has just been awarded £2,825.26 towards the cost of providing its weekly arts and crafts session for adults with learning and/or physical disabilities. We are very grateful to local Co-op Members for their support.


We had a fundraising meal at the Maharaja Indian Restaurant in Benfleet on 26th October and raised just over £500. Thank you to everyone who supported this event.


In 2017 we have raised £1,000 from our children’s arts and crafts activities at Leigh Community Centre. Over 70 children took part in our October half term event. You can see press coverage here.
