One of our Two youth companies have been selected to receive some funding from Mars Milk…woo hoo :-) Please see below for more information about the fund and if you are interested in joining Clash then get in touch email@example.com
Clash Youth Dance, based in Dartmouth, is celebratingafter receiving a £300 donation from the MARS Milk Fund.
The group gives young people in Dartmouth the opportunity to express themselves through different dance styles. Clash Youth Dance meets once a week to practice with the dancers choreographing their own routines to their favourite music.
Claire Summers, dance instructor and managing director of the troupe says: “Class Youth Dance was originally set up as a temporary project but the young people in the troupe were so talented and committed that I had to keep it going. However, as we are a non-profit group it is difficult to find money to cover the cost of hiring instructors.
“With this donation from the MARS Milk Fund we can now afford to keep paying dance instructors to come in and teach the group new dance styles.”
A recent survey conducted by MARS Milk revealed that despite seven out of ten of us starting the week with intention of spending at least two hours on our favourite sport or hobby, cost and tiredness invariably put paid to these plans.
The MARS Milk Fund was set up to help individuals, clubs and groups to try something new or simply to spend more time playing their favourite sport or hobby. The MARS Milk Fund, runs until October 6 2013 and has five £300 awards to donate each week.
The fund is open to residents of, and clubs and organisations based in the UK and Republic of Ireland only. Applicants must be 13 years or over and only one application will be accepted per person, club or organisation.
