Sunday for Sammy - Our future plans
...we'll be back!
It's January 2021 and the Covid 19 epidemic is still causing major problems to all areas of the performing arts making rehearsing, touring and training almost impossible.
There is hope for the future as the national vaccination campaign gets up to speed but the prospect of attending or performng at a packed concert or show is still a long way off.
After further consideration the Sunday for Sammy Trustees have unanimously decided to temporarily pause all of our activities till the overall situation improves enough to make the performing arts viable again.
We send love and best wishes to everyone who has supported us and to all of the talented young people who have benefitted from our work.
Hang on in there, we'll be back.
The Sunday for Sammy Trust.
About the Sunday for Sammy Trust
Sunday for Sammy Trust was formed to help provide funding for creative, talented and enthusiastic young people from the North East who are looking for a career in performing arts.
The Trust raises money from ticket sales from the Sunday for Sammy concerts and the sale of related merchandise and also accepts gift donations from individuals and private companies. It then invests the money to provide grants for young actors, musicians, singers, dancers, comedy acts and other performers to help towards the cost of their training or equipment.
Applications for funding are welcome at any time of the year: applicants should aged 16 or over, and and each application must be supported by a letter of recommendation, either from a course tutor or someone equally able to comment objectively on the applicant’s ability.
It isn’t essential for applicants to be attending a training course - what we are looking for are enthusiasm, creative talent and determination. The applications are reviewed every six months and then auditions are held in Newcastle for the Trustees to meet and assess the applicants and to consider supporting them with a grant.
The Trustees are: Tim Healy (Chairman), Lynn O’ Sullivan, Ray Stubbs, Jason Cook and Paul Irwin. Administrator: Ray Laidlaw.
