A Bromley based charity has today been awarded funding through the Arts Council England Catalyst Small Grants fund.

Magpie Dance, located at Bromley High Street, is a dance charity for people with learning disabilities.

Offering workshops throughout the UK, the participants gain opportunities through high quality programmes in participation, performance and training.

The fund supports organisations to build fundraising capacity, enabling them to attract more private giving to arts and culture.

Thalie Martini, Magpie Dance Chief Executive, said: “As a small dance charity working with people with learning disabilities of all ages, this grant is of huge value to us”.

Joyce Wilson, London Area Director for Arts Council England, said: “It is hugely important for London’s arts and cultural organisations to be able to be more sustainable, resilient and diversify their incomes.

“I am therefore thrilled that we are able to fund this excellent project in Bromley.”
