Great to see Everything There Ever Was, which was commissioned by our East Durham Creates project, has been shortlisted to the top 3 for 'Best Event Durham' for the Journal Culture Awards. Thank you to our fabulous local community who supported and were involved in the project and made it the success it was.

With families having limited access to free school meals during the Easter holidays, our FEED Project sees an increase in need. We are particularly looking for donations of tinned meats, tinned vegetables and fruit, cereal, pasta sauces, and sugar.
Every little helps and all donations are gratefully accepted.
Thanks for your support!

A special thank you to Brandon and Morgan from Acre Rigg Academy who have raised money as part of a creative enterprise scheme with Foundation of Light. They generously donated food to our FEED project which will help people in need across East Durham.
They even helped our volunteer with organising the food into the FEED room.
