The Arts Society to the rescue of That Emperor’s Fool

After reading in the Wokingham Paper that pupils from Bulmershe School desperately needed funds to enable them to take their musical ’That Emperor’s Fool’ to premier at the Edinburgh Fringe, The Arts Society Wokingham quickly sprang into action.

A cheque for £500 was sent straight to Alistair Mungall to ensure that this talented group of young people could cover the costs of their trip. One of the aims of The Arts Society is to help young people to expand their horizons through their involvement in creative arts activities and this project certainly fits the bill.

Alistair Mungall (the trip organiser) said, ‘Thanks so much to The Arts Society Wokingham for your donation.

We have a number of very able, wonderful students who simply could not afford to cover the costs of their trip. We therefore worked hard to obtain sponsorship. However, we were falling short of what we needed to cover the essentials - accommodation, travel and food. Your support therefore could not have been more welcome! Thank you so much.’
