The Make A Difference Trust has launched a new fundraising initiative, reviving and repurposing their Emergency Fund in order to support those in the theatre community suffering hardship because ofthe Coronavirus crisis.
The Make A Difference Trust has always been about community; the theatre community coming together to help those in need. Today it is the theatre community that needs help. Inspired by theirclose friends at Broadway Cares, MAD has launched the COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund to support those on stage and behind the scenes experiencing hardship during these unprecedented times.
To support the Emergency Assistance Fund, 23 West End actresses who have played Elphaba or Glinda in the multi-award-winning smash-hit musical WICKED have joined together to perform a stunning rendition of the show’s ‘For Good’. The track will be released on social media on Wednesday 13 May to support the Make a Difference Trust with a donation request at the end of the video.
The video can be viewed and downloaded here and will also be available on the MAD website:www.madtrust.org.uk
