A Highgate arts centre has been awarded more than £100,000 by Children in Need to continue its innovative circus groups with local children.
The Jacksons Lane centre will use the funding – a three year grant worth £104,782 – to provide weekly workshops for children and young people to learn from seasoned circus and drama performers.
Natalia Cid, who manages Jacksons Lane’s creative learning programme, said: “We are incredibly pleased to receive funding from BBC Children in Need to be able to run JL Circus for a further three years.
“Our youth board were key in the development of the application for funding as we wanted to make sure the programme responds to the needs of participants.
“They were particularly keen to show how circus skills can be used to create, inspire and engage with others in their community.”
