Creative Internships Blog Week 12
Eleanor Prescott, Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru
As we head into December the Centre has been getting into the Christmas spirit… and our donation boxes have had a seasonal makeover. The Grotto opened over the weekend for families and as Christmas is a time of giving it’s a good time to remind our community that the Centre is first and foremost a charity. So if you happen to be passing along the concourse this December - especially with little ones in tow – be sure to stop by our Santa or our elf boxes and give in the spirit of the season.
The last five weeks have been packed with activities – A&B Cymru turned five and celebrated at the Sherman, and us interns got some experience of setting up and running an event as well as time to network with some of A&B Cymru’s guests and get to know each other better, a fun evening as well as a valuable one for all of us. I’ve also recently received CMS training in order to change our supporter webpage copy on the content management system, gone along to a meet and greet with the cast and crew from Wonderman which is coming up this month, and shadowed in contract renewal meetings for corporate partners. One of our supporters even took the time to talk to me in depth about their contract and explain anything I didn’t understand, which was unexpected but highly appreciated.
I’m personally excited at the moment about what the year ahead holds for Tiger Bay, our new musical, which I have been helping organise sponsorship and community fundraising packs for so far and will continue to help fundraise for throughout the internship.
