Arts and Culture winner of LoveBrum’s monthly £2,000 prize

ASTON Performing Arts Academy has been awarded £2,000 from charity LoveBrum after it polled the most votes in the monthly competition.
Each month, LoveBrum selects three good causes around one theme and asks its members to vote for one of the organisations.
July’s theme was arts and culture and the Academy went up against Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre Trust and Birmingham Centre for Arts Therapies.
APAA offers music and performance tuition to young people aged 6-24 and provide opportunities for them to perform – encouraging their self esteem, confidence and their ability in the arts.
It is going to use the money from LoveBrum to help replenish the equipment it has, including replacing microphones and drum kits. The extra funds will also enable the group to work with more young people and shorten its waiting list.
