Last year FACT Director Mike Stubbs took on the Liverpool Wire Challenge (an 800 foot zip wire in the city centre) in aid of FACT, raising a fantastic £1500 towards our charitable work with young people. This September, he’s decided to throw himself out of a plane.
Super September is a month of fundraising for FACT, with staff taking on challenges to raise money for our work with communities and young people. Our new Executive Director Jo Wright and his wife Georgie are cycling the Leeds-Liverpool canal in a grueling 127 mile physical challenge and staff members are planning to scale Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales (with no help from the mountain train whatsoever!). Together we want to raise money for FACT’s life-enriching community engagement projects.
FACT projects help create the next generation of artists, engineers, designers and directors. We inspire all ages with coding clubs, BFI accredited filmmaking courses and school projects. Our work with elderly and veteran groups builds confidence and community, creating artists in their own right with unique voices.
Each year, FACT projects work with over 2000 people from across Merseyside - one of the most deprived areas in the country.
As a member of FACT’s veteran project said “The project has saved my life. [...] It has helped me to try different things that I didn’t know I was good at and it has given me something to look forward to.”
