Bristol businesses come together to support schools through Ablaze

13th September 2018

Categories: Latest News

Thanks to a collaboration between Ablaze, Rolls-Royce and The Bristol Hippodrome, 12 primary schools were lucky enough to be treated to boxes at the Hippodrome’s children’s shows over the last few weeks.

Pupils from Evergreen Primary Academy - who are part of the Cabot Learning Federation - were treated to the ‘Teletubbies Live Overview’ performance and all the pupils were thrilled to see the Teletubbies on stage. For some of the pupils who attended shows over the summer, their visit to the Hippodrome was the first time they had ever been to the theatre.

Deborah Barkham, the Inclusion Lead and SENCo at Evergreen Primary Academy, says, “ The children really enjoyed the Teletubbies Live show. They loved the opportunity to experience live theatre in such beautiful surroundings.”

Charlotte Kelly, Community Investment Officer at Rolls-Royce in Filton says, “Rolls-Royce works with a range of specialist partners to support social investment programmes that make a positive difference to the local communities which we serve. We wanted to do something different in 2018, so when we were approached by the Bristol Hippodrome, we jumped at the opportunity to become one of their corporate partners offering those who may not be able to visit the theatre the opportunity to go.

“With shows like Awful Auntie, Teletubbies Live and Peppa Pig’s Adventure being shown at the Bristol Hippodrome, we decided to work with our longstanding corporate charity & partner, Ablaze, to offer this opportunity to pupils who might not get the chance to go to the theatre…This has been a fantastic partnership, bringing three organisations together to give something back to the local community.”
