INSTEAD OF CHRISTMAS CARDS THIS YEAR…
The National Theatre of Scotland is inviting businesses across Scotland to support their Festive Firsts campaign. Rather than spend money on printing and posting Christmas cards, companies can instead make a donation to Festive Firsts, which offers a group of young people who have never had the opportunity a first-in-a-lifetime experience of live theatre.
In return, the business receives a personalised digital card and social media badges to send to and share with their clients, suppliers and contacts, letting them know that they’re supporting the campaign. They also receive an invitation to a Festive Firsts reception at Rockvilla, National Theatre of Scotland’s creation centre, to find out more about the work and experiences created for young people
Since 2011, Festive Firsts has provided inspirational experiences for over 4,000 young people who otherwise would not have had the chance - because of how much money they have, where they live or because their life situation hasn’t allowed them to take part.
