Springwell Community Arts keep dancing
Mansfield Building Society has donated £479 through its Community Support Scheme to Springwell Community Arts dance group by purchasing dance mats to increase the safety of dancers.
Springwell Community Arts, also known as SCART, is based at Springwell Community College in Chesterfield and offers a range of programmes and activities in the arts to those in the local area, including junior and youth dance groups that hold classes three times a week.
Brian Evans, Group Manager at SCART said “We would like to say a huge thank you to Mansfield Building Society for this act of community giving. The dance groups currently rehearse in the drama studio at the college with a hard floor, and it will really help our members to be able to develop their skills further by practicing certain moves with the added safety of the dance mats.”
Tom Molloy, Chesterfield Branch Manager at The Mansfield, said “It was great to deliver the mats to the college and see how excited and happy the children were to receive them. Hopefully these mats will endure, allowing many children to practice dancing and develop their skills safely. We are very proud to be able to support them.”
Mansfield Building Society donates to local groups in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire through its Community Support Scheme, with a committee comprised of Society employees and independent members meeting twice yearly in May and November to consider applications.
