This was our first ever Christmas Appeal with the aim of raising funds to buy equipment that will really improve our workshops.
Last year our students took part in a fashion show at Waverley Station, played in sell-out music gigs in Edinburgh and Glasgow, started up a new social enterprise cafe in Leith, went on glamping holidays (and sang songs round a camp fire), exhibited work in exhibitions, choreographed dance performances and wrote and acted in their own plays.
At Upward Mobility, our students achieve amazing things. This is made possible because of the generous support that we receive from trusts and foundations and from friends and families.
The Christmas Appeal raised £650! Thanks so much to everyone who donated! Every penny will go towards helping to ensure that we can continue to offer workshops and other opportunities in 2018 that are challenging and fun and support our students towards greater independence.
Thanks so much for your support!
