Help Laika fly again with the Big Give

27th November 2015

ETO is thrilled to have been chosen to participate again in the Big Give Christmas Challenge on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 December 2015.

This year we’re aiming to raise £10,000 in order to revive our award winning production of Laïka, the Spacedog, which was last seen in schools, libraries and theatres around the UK in 2013.

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a time-sensitive, online matched funding opportunity set up by Sir Alec Reed and The Reed Foundation. Every online donation we receive during the Challenge, from £5 to £5,000, could be doubled, but you’ll have to be quick!

How to Support ETO via the Big Give

Matched funding will be available from 12 noon on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 December but it’s not unlimited, so if you want to make a donation in support of opera for children then please make sure you’ve got your timing right and visit the page as close to 12pm as possible.
