£34,500 raised for charity in 2021!
Tramlines Festival is committed to raising awareness and supporting local charities and organisations.
After last Summer’s festival, Tramlines raised £34,500 for charity, which brings the total since moving to Hillsborough Park to a whopping £103,000!
The donations were raised through a charity raffle, guest-list donations, ticket donation opt-ins, charity merch sales and ‘Nulty’s’ backstage bar – an area named after the late Festival Director, Sarah Nulty.
In 2021, donations were made to:
Since 2019 we have worked alongside Hillsborough Primary School on a Tea Towel Merch line. The donation will be going towards providing high quality reading corners in the classroom and artwork for the library, which is currently being painted with characters and books to make it a warm and child friendly space.
To provide personal and practical support to adults with a learning disability in the Hillsborough community, to enable and assist them to live in a safe environment, whilst promoting choice and independence in their daily routine.
The Archer Project is a place where homeless and vulnerable people can change their lives for the better.
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice cares for children and young adults whose lives are just too short, and their families.
We are a survivor-led mental health & well-being organisation – Supporting black people with mental health issues.
Helping local people in crisis.
The Sarah Nulty Power of Music Foundation is an official Tramlines Charity Partner! The Power of Music Foundation enables, encourages and guides socially and economically disadvantaged people in Sheffield to develop musical abilities.
Shannon Gossage, Regional Fundraiser at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, said: “Tramlines just gets bigger and better each year, so it’s incredibly refreshing that it’s still very much a festival with its heart in the community.
“Tramlines has supported so many fantastic local causes over the years, providing a fantastic boost to charities like Bluebell Wood which rely on the support of the community.
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to Tramlines and everyone who’s kindly donated, bought merchandise or played the raffle.
“The funds you’ve raised will help us make unforgettable memories with children and families who sadly don’t know how long they have with one another.”
The Sarah Nulty Power of Music Foundation commented, “Through the donations received from Tramlines we have been able to increase our grants and give more support to initiatives, projects and one offs that make people’s lives better through music in Sheffield. We have been able to support Sheffield Children’s Hospital, a local youth choir, a talented young musician, and a music therapy project through our latest round of grants. It means a great deal to have the support of Tramlines in carrying on Sarah’s legacy.”
