In today's leadership round-up the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre receives a much needed donation from a local patron & Emily Aklan is interviewed by Global Woman as a celebration of her achievements to date. 

Steve Bull Foundation donates to Wolverhampton Grand Theatre

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre has received a fantastic donation of £1500 from The Steve Bull Foundation.

Whilst many fundraising events have not been able to take place this year, the Foundation did manage to hold a socially distanced Golf Day in 2020 and the theatre was fortunate to be one of their chosen charities that day.

Steve Bull who has been a supporter of the theatre and in recent years an official Ambassador said,

“It is an absolute pleasure to be an Ambassador for Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. Having now worked with them for several years I have seen how the theatre, which is also a charity, supports The City and surrounding areas.

The theatrical experiences they have been providing for people living with Dementia and the Theatre In Education projects are just first class.”
