‘12 Days Of Christmas’ fundraising campaign run by charity The Hive in Shrewsbury

The Hive, an arts charity and venue in the heart of Shrewsbury has launched a Christmas Fundraising Campaign to help raise money for the various projects it runs throughout the year. The ‘12 days of Hive Christmas Campaign’ is asking for donations of £5 that will help support projects The Hive delivers to thousands of people in challenging circumstances across Shropshire throughout the year.

Projects & Programmes Manager, Emma Croall said: “This campaign is a great way to highlight to people the work The Hive does in their local community and gives them the opportunity to help us make a difference to the lives of even more people in this area by donating just £5 by texting HMMA05 £5 to 70070 if they can.”

The Hive works with groups including: Young Carers, Hope House Hospice, Armed Forces Families, Severnside Housing, Looked After Children and activities on the projects include band-building and music skills, pottery, Taiko drumming and more. Through these workshops, participants grow in confidence, make new friends and feel part of something that helps to develop positive self-esteem.

A young person who participated in one of these projects said: “I would like to thank all the team at the Hive because singing is now my passion! They have helped me be the person I am today! If I wasn’t doing The Hive project I don’t know what I would be doing! Probably something boring! When I first went to the Hive I was so shy! I didn’t think I would socialise with anyone! But I have met so many amazing people and my confidence has grown so much! I used to be a closed book! I recommend this to everyone! The experience is phenomenal!”
