Support for drama queens and kings

Published 9 October 2018

A WDH Community Grant has helped Love2Act drama club to buy new costumes and props for their production with a £646 cash boost.

Love2Act is a group that provide drama sessions and workshops in the Wakefield district to children and young people aged four to 14.  The drama sessions run on a weekly basis at the Phoenix Centre in Alverthorpe. They offer a wide range of activities involving drama and theatre to young people such as character work, script writing, stage building and voice work.

The group applied for a WDH Community Grant to fund their venue hire and buy costumes and props for their upcoming production of ‘Wakefield’s Got Talent’.

The leader of the group, Jessica Power said: “The impact that the funding has had on Love2Act is immense. It has given our community group the chance to buy resources, which we would not have been able to do without the funding. This helped the members take on their character roles better, and perform more confidently in front of an audience.”

Natalie Grinsill, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer said: “We are proud to support the Love2Act group. This group is great because it supports children in the areas where many of our tenants live. The children are very happy with their new costumes.”
