Donate your BetterPoints to great local causes
Users can donate their BetterPoints earned from the Move for Change challenge in support of local charities. One such charity listed on the BetterPoints app is Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival.
Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival (BDBF) operate three venues, a large annual arts festival and a music education service, reaching an audience of over half a million people every year and teaching 14,000 children in Brighton & Hove and East Sussex. BDBF believe the arts inspire and change lives. And access to art for everyone is a universal human right. Now more than ever, art can lift our spirits, brighten our days and support our mental health.
Like all arts organisations, they have been dramatically impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. 67% of the charity’s self-generated income disappeared in March through loss of ticket sales and events. BDBF has a £12.5 million annual turnover but their 1,800 capacity Concert Hall is currently unable to re-open for live performances due to social distancing regulation. The venue’s main theatre spaces - the Studio Theatre and the Corn Exchange - are still under redevelopment that has thankfully continued throughout the past few months, and the team are working hard to complete the work and welcome back audiences
BDBF have been doing everything they can to make recovery, renewal and reopening possible and are very grateful for the financial and other support received so far from audience members, funders and partners. Without loyal audiences and supporters, BDBF could not exist but with your support you will help them build back from this crisis and look forward to the future with confidence.
