Welcome to the Bill Cashmore Anniversary Newsletter 2019

It is now nearly 2 years since Bill died but we are still working hard to commemorate him and honour his memory. The newsletter is therefore coming out a little early this year as there is so much exciting news to impart.

Elin Schofield and Eve Cowley, Lyric Theatre, London


We are now taking donations for next year’s Award and need to raise £10,000 by April. Please, please do consider donating or, even better, hosting a fundraising event in its honour. I really want to keep this Award going in perpetuity – both to keep Bill’s name alive, and to support and promote young people in the Arts when they are so starved of funding. I can only do that with your help so please think about what you can offer, or how you can help me fundraise.

As an added incentive I will be matching all donations, putting that money in a separate growth fund, with the long-term aim that at some point in the future the Award can be self-funding. But that day is a long way off so please see the end of this newsletter for all the details on how to donate. Or contact me if you have a fundraising idea that I can help with.
