Arts Emergency

Raising money for Arts Emergency

Our network is full of passionate and kindhearted people who support Arts Emergency in all sorts of ways. Over the last few years many of our volunteers have courageously taken up the challenge of raising money for Arts Emergency as part of an event or have generously committed a proportion of their income.
