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 already have 7 people willing to take part in this year's Moonlight Colourthon to raise money for The Art Ministry. If you want take part too you can register at the Colourthon website here


We have just been told that we have been successful in our application for a Southend Safe and Enjoyable High Street Grant. We will use the money to allow us to keep providing weekly arts and crafts sessions for residents of a complex needs hostel in the centre of Southend.


Thank you to customers of Leigh on Sea Waitrose's green tokens who supported us in January. As a result we have just received a cheque for 213 from Waitrose.
