The Tramlines festival has launched a new trust to support local charities and organisations.
Since 2009, the festival has an staggering raised over £103,000 and in 2021 alone raised £34,500.
The money was donated to various Sheffield charities such as Sheffield Young Cares, Weston Park Cancer Charity and Tramlines own charity the Sarah Nulty Power of Music Foundation.
Based in Hillsborough Park, the festival aim to promote Sheffield’s art and culture, improve the local area and raise awareness for the charities it supports.
Timm Cleasby, Head of Operations for Tramlines said: ‘It’s incredibly important to us all at Tramlines that we support the Sheffield community and local area’
‘Our work with the trust will build on everything we already do in the community and help forge new links with projects and charities that we can support and amplify their work’.
Part of the festival’s work includes collaboration with Hillsborough Primary School in which the children’s creativity is encouraged.
The children draw artists performing at the festival onto tea towels. These tea towels are sold as merchandise at the festival and all funds go to the school.
This year the festival will see artists such as Sam Fender, Kasabian and Madness play Hillsborough Park with tickets almost sold out.
Those projects, organisations and charities looking to apply for funding will be able to in spring 2022.
