14th September 2015 By: Conrad Colson

This past Sunday, a special performance of a play, ‘A Fragile Lift’, written by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families' Young Patron Christina Carrafiel, was put on in aid of the Centre at the Chelsea Theatre.


There was a fantastic turnout, with the play’s spirited exploration of two couples’ experiences of being stuck in a lift drawing a fantastic response from the audience. We are thrilled to report that proceeds and donations from the show have raised almost £2,000 for the Centre. This generous contribution will enable us to continue delivering the absolutely vital support and treatment needed to improve the mental health and long-term futures of young people experiencing complex problems.

Katy Vaughan, Fundraising Manager at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Christina for putting on this fantastic show in aid of the Centre. It is wonderful to see young people using their talents to help other young people. This support is incredibly valued by the Centre and will make a real difference to disadvantaged children and their families.”
