We believe that engaging in music, art and physical exercise is vital to a child’s mental and physical development. We also believe it is unacceptable for money to be a barrier to that which is vital.
Our mission is to pay the enrolment fee for financially disadvantaged children to participate in sports, music and art offered in the City of Cambridge and to improve and support the mental and physical health of children in Cambridge.
