We are delighted to be able to announce our support for The Malala Fund in 2016-2017, inspired by the actions of Year 10 student Ella Stead.
Our first fundraiser for the charity will be a screening of the documentary film about the life of Malala Yousafzai in support of the Stand #withMalala campaign on Thursday 10 November at 6pm in the Gate Theatre. Admission is just £1 and there will be a bucket for other donations at the end of the screening. Refreshments will be available to purchase on the night.
About Stand #withMalala
Today, over 130 million girls are out of school globally. It is time to take action!

Through audience engagement with global and in-country calls to action, the campaign aims to raise mass awareness, funding, and policy change by activating millions of people worldwide as newfound champions for girls’ education globally.
