Arts charity gets chance to expand
Orcadia Movement is planning to increase the numbers of children who attend its twice weekly after-school club from 24 to 36 due to rising demand.
It will do so with help from Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland, which has awarded it a grant of £6000 to cover the additional staffing costs.
Established in 1991, the Orcadia Creative Learning Centre operates a communication arts programme, which involves music, dance, drama, movement, mime, puppetry and creative arts.
More than 160 young people attend activities each week.
Project co-ordinator Jenny Clark said: “This grant will make a huge difference to us and will allow us to address the after-school club’s waiting list.”
