A Donor's Story

Sarianne first came across SSF when a friend invited her to a fundraiser at Middle Temple. Since then she has supported a Festival night every year, choosing schools that are local to her home and going along to support their performances. She explained why seeing the young people onstage inspires her every time:

"I imagine the children carry on thinking about what they've read and said and done, and some of them will go on and do something completely different with their lives, but one day it will be so important that they did this."

Each year, Shakespeare Schools Festival engages 35,000 young people. We rely on the support of our donors to secure our future.
