Donated to Lowry Christmas Appeal 2019’s £25000.00 Goal

Do something special this Christmas. Support The Lowry by donating to make a positive impact on young people’s mental health and well-being in Salford.

Since 2011 our generous audiences, patrons and supporters have helped us raise an astonishing £240,000 through the Christmas Appeal, which has directly supported our life-changing Learning and Engagement work in Salford.

This year the Christmas Appeal will support our work with vulnerable and at-risk young people in Salford, aiming to positively impact young people’s mental health and well-being across a broad range of our projects.

Salford has some of the highest levels of poor mental health in the country (Salford Mental Wellbeing Strategy). Research shows that 15% of children in the lowest socio-economic group develop mental health problems, which can lead to poor mental health and life chances as adults.

Funds raised in The Lowry’s Christmas Appeal will support work co-created with young people who are disengaged from formal education, those with experience of the care system, young carers, young parents and those experiencing homelessness. This will provide vital help to some of the most vulnerable young people, supporting them to develop key skills, improve their well-being and create better futures for themselves.


Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

The Lowry Centre Trust is a registered charity no. 1053962.

Help us reach our target of £25,000. Any funds raised over this will be ploughed into Learning & Engagement team’s overheads and running costs that will support our projects to happen.

All funds raised will be passed to The Lowry Centre Trust irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded. If funds are being raised for a specific purpose and, for whatever reason, this purpose is no longer valid, the funds will be transferred to the charity for general use.

The charity

The Lowry is a cross-arts organisation and registered charity in Salford (no. 1053962). We welcome visitors to our three theatres, gallery spaces and we are also home to the UK's public collection of work by LS Lowry. Central to our vision is our commitment to our local communities in Salford, with particular focus on disadvantaged or marginalised young people and each year The Lowry engages with over 35,000 people from our communities through ground-breaking participation, learning and vocational training programmes which harnesses the arts to discover talents, improve skills, and boost confidence. Through our Learning and Engagement programme we aim to:

  • Change the lives of children and young people who are vulnerable or 'at-risk' e.g. Young Carers, Children in Care, Young Parents and those experiencing homeslessness, by raising their self-esteem and creative skills development
  • Provide real routes into training or employment for those who are, or at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training)
  • To discover, support and develop emerging artists and theatre-makers
  • To continue to bring the very best in world-class visual and performing arts to our regions
  • Use the arts as a powerful tool to inspire people to shape their lives and the lives of people around them for the better

Registered charity (no. 1053962).

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
