Decorating / Refurbishing Team - Corporate Volunteering

We are looking for volunteers to lend a hand throughout August as we look to transform a current building in Aldershot into our new Musical Theatre Academy. Perfect for those who love a little DIY and even more so if you fancy getting out of your offices / work place and helping in the local community for a day or two? 

Tasks include clearing building of rubbish (skips provided), sanding, prepping and painting.

Interested? Here's a little more info about why we are doing it and just to reassure you we'll be on hand to supervise and manage everyone throughout the month:

Starburst are leasing a three-floor grade 2 listed building, located in Aldershot Hampshire. We intend to convert the space into a Musical Theatre Academy. This will comprise two dance studios with dance mirrors, sprung dance floors and hard-wearing dance mat coverings, two vocal studios with pianos and teaching equipment and two drama studios. The space will be open 7 days a week and offer a range of musical theatre workshops to various ages and dedicated classes for adults and families alike. We will also train the children and audition them for the local professional Panto in Fleet  which the Starburst Foundation produces.

 The Musical Theatre Academy will reach out to various children including disadvantaged children from difficult backgrounds who would not normally undertake the arts due to domestic circumstances. To offer a platform that can remove a child from a difficult reality and allow escape to a world of fun and creative autonomy. We pride ourselves on the family we create around our members, looking to develop transferable life skills and foster an attitude of 'can do'. The Academy is based in Aldershot Hampshire which is one of the 30% most deprived areas in the UK.
