Have fun and raise money for us

The Wac Arts Backers scheme is not only about us asking for straight up donations… We are also using the scheme as a good excuse to get people to face their fears or do something that they have always wanted to do!

CamilleThis July, our very own Camille Curtis y Van Dyke skydived to raise funds for Wac Arts! Demonstrating considerable dedication to the cause, this was Camille’s first ever parachute jump, skydiving the north London skies!

With a fundraising target of £500, Camille was hoping to become a Wac Arts Silver Backer in our new Wac Arts Backers campaign. Her day job is Social Inclusion Officer at Wac Arts and the skydive event is something she’d always wanted to do – but never quite got around to doing. So, using Wac Arts as her motivation Camille took the plunge on July 13th and smashed her target by raising over £1,000 for Wac Arts.

Other current students and staff are following in Camille’s footsteps and stepping up to the challenge, not only raising money for Wac Arts, but taking this time to achieve personal goals.

LulaAnother salutation to Lula Mebrahtuthe amazing alumni who cycled more than 400 miles to raise as much money as possible for Wac Arts. Never having cycled or even owned a bicycle until a week before her epic journey began, this was a massive challenge for Lula.

And to make things even more difficult, she was also recovering from an operation earlier in the year! Lula was determined to do something truly incredible to show her appreciation for the support she received throughout her time on the Wac Arts Diploma. Her aim is to ensure we can continue our work enabling all young people to realise their creative ambitions for the next 35 years.

So Lula’s cycle ride took her ten long, hard days, cycling the length of the UK to support our work and show her love for the special organisation that we are.

If you, like Camille or Lula, have always wanted to do something but never took the time out of your busy day, why not use Wac Arts as your drive and do it now!
