‘Shape’, a disability-led arts organisation working to improve access to culture for disabled people provided this type of support until lack funding caused them to discontinue this service. Superb support for visually impaired people to get to the venues is now provided by the ‘Thomas Pocklington Trust’. A4Altruistic supports the Thomas Pocklington Trust in continuing this service.
A4Altruistic supports venues that reduce ticket prices to live music for visually impaired people.
A4Altruistic intends for the supported registered charities to become better recognised and promoted in London.
Obviously we welcome all donations, but are equally happy for you to support the ‘Thomas Pocklington Trust’ directly.
We accept cheques made payable to 'A4Altruistic' and sent to 56 Verulam House, Hammersmith Grove, London W6 0NW.
