Solidarity Lodge No. 7885 in Shaw, East Lancashire, has made a cash donation for the fourth year running to Playhouse 2 Youth Theatre at Shaw
PH2Youth, as it is known, have been running for over five years and boasts over 50 student members. The financial support has been well received and this year it will be used to help put the students through their LAMDA examinations (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art).
Barbara Micklethwaite, Chairman of Crompton Stage Society, said: ‘We are so grateful to Solidarity Lodge for their donation to our youth theatre. As a charity we are always thankful for any external support we receive.
'We feel it is important for all of our students to get the best out of their time at our youth theatre and being able to take group LAMDA examinations at no extra cost is part of that.’
PH2Youth are extremely keen for their students to take group LAMDA examinations as it is something tangible for them to take forward on their journey through education. They are about to begin a new term and will soon start preparations for the LAMDA exams, which will take place in the summer.
