Little Bryn Gwyn Dream Comes True

Our Director, Margaret Jervis attended  People’s Postcode Lottery’s Annual Charity Gala held in Edinburgh’s famous Assembly Rooms along with our Down to Earth Partner, Mark McKenna and received a cheque beyond our wildest dreams of £583,000 towards creating a landmark residential centre replacing Little Bryn Gwyn our much loved ramshackle cottage on the Gower.

‘Building Our Dreams’ is a joint project between Valleys Kids and Down to Earth Project and will  enable us to work with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in South Wales to build the new centre.

Margaret Jervis, our Operational Director  said: “For the last 10 years we have dreamt of transforming Little Bryn Gwyn, our cottage on the Gower, into a landmark residential centre using the most beautiful and sustainable building methods available. It is only in partnership with Down to Earth and now, with funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery through the Dream Fund, that we can create something exceptional and extraordinary and fulfil that dream. But the biggest dream is that young people from some of the most disadvantaged communities in Wales can literally build their own centre and help build a better future for themselves.”

We cannot thank People’s Postcode Lottery and their players enough. The Centre will comprise 2 distinct buildings and this is  a brilliant launchpad towards completing the first building and helping us  raise the remaining funds to complete the second.

‘Some People Have Too Many Legs’ by Jackie Hagan – Friday 20th November 7pm at Soar Centre, Penygraig

“Last Summer Jackie Hagan went to hospital with a mystery disease, and was told that she was going to die. Luckily she didn’t die, but she did eat loads and loads of Kit Kats because she thought it wouldn’t matter if she got fat.

She also lost a leg, made friends with an old woman who looked like a threadbare tennis ball (with eyes), fell in love with a posh man called Miles, and found her Dad.

Some People Have Too Many Legs is a show about facing your fears and throwing glitter at them”.

Tickets are £5 and £2 for concessions. For further information on this Night Out event or to reserve tickets, please contact ArtWorks on: 01443 303032 / 01443 420870.

The Princess and the Pea by Sherman Cymru

 

princess_and_the_pea_main_final

In a magical Kingdom far, far away lived a Prince. A Prince whose one true wish was to marry a Princess. One night, in the flash and crash of lightning, in the howl and whine of the wind there was a knock at the castle door and a girl was blown in… but surely she couldn’t be a Princess?

There was only way to find out…FETCH THE ROYAL PEA and hide it under the mattress! Only a real Princess would be able to feel such a tiny thing hiding there!

Join Artworks and Sherman Cymru this Christmas for a deliciously mischievous re-telling of one of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tales.

Filled with laughter, music and a big sprinkling of magic, this story is perfect for 3 to 6 year olds and their families.
