Vote for puppets
Many Stanhoe residents will know Nic Hopkins and Kate Jewell for their work with the excellent Norwich Puppet Theatre as well as their wine tasting events and loyal support for other village activities.
The Puppet Theatre is seeking money from the Aviva Community Fund to help support their work with children who need help – and your votes could help them get it. Take a few moments to sign up (you can use Facebook) and you’ll get ten votes to cast as you wish. You can give them all to the Puppet Theatre, or split them among other worthy causes. The projects with the most votes will get funding from Aviva.
The Puppet Theatre says: “The aim of this project is to build on and develop the successful Voice of the Child project of 2016 to ensure that the Puppet Theatre has the necessary up-to-date technical equipment to deliver our performances and workshops.”
“It will also help us continue to make the venue a more inclusive space by continuing to offer holiday activities to children under the umbrella of Norfolk Children’s Services and to start working with children who have complex needs to break down barriers of isolation.”
The Puppet Theatre currently has 588 votes, but it will need a lot more to stand a good chance of success in this nationwide competition. Voting closes in less than three weeks, so don’t hang about.
