Help a child like Laila

Posted on 22 November 2017

We’re gearing up for our first Making Memories event this evening, and thanks to the support of our fabulous donors, we’re hoping to welcome a big crowd.

Providing tickets to some of Coventry and Warwickshire’s most in-need families, our Making Memories campaign needs your help to raise enough money to provide 600 people with tickets to see Cinderella, giving treasured memories after a difficult year.

Below is a real application for Laila and her family. Her name has been changed but her story is real.

Laila lives in Coventry with her mum and four older brothers and one younger sister. The family have recently returned to the city, after escaping domestic violence, and are living in a two-bedroom flat until a more permanent home can be found. Laila is a bright and friendly little girl, but has found it difficult to cope with her step-father’s suicide last year. Laila is just 6 years of age and has never been to a pantomime.
