The Lowry’s 2018 Christmas Appeal raised more than double its target—topping out at £30,500 for the art centre’s work with young parents in Salford.

The money will fund a year-long project with two teenage parent groups in the city.

Julia Fawcett OBE, chief executive at The Lowry, said, “our audiences, supporters and staff never fail to amaze me with their generosity. £30,000 is an incredible figure and the year-long project it will fund will make a real difference to the lives of teenage parents across Salford.

“This year’s Christmas Appeal was supported by British Airways and I’d like to thank them for helping us to raise so much money for such a good cause.”
