Walking through the old gates to Belmont

This week we’re moving away from our young roots project and heading back home to Cheadle.

Last week we had a visit from a gentleman who used to live at Belmont House, back in the 1950s. This was his first visit to his old home since he left at the age of 7. Consequently we went on a walk of the grounds, both to Belmont House, which is next door to our current offices, and to the buildings onsite, once children’s homes and now schools. Visuals prompt memories and help to reconstruct the landscape as it used to be. Although the charity still resides on the same site it purchased 96 years ago, much as changed.

Deep Pockets and Dirty Faces goes online!

We are excited to announce that the full version of our audio/visual piece for Deep Pockets and Dirty Faces is on our website for everyone to view.

The project now has a dedicated webpage on our Together Trust website, to allow us to share some of the amazing work our young people have been doing with the local community and beyond. As well as our audio/visual clip, we will be adding to this page as further work is completed. We hope people will enjoy watching them as much as we have enjoyed making them.

Come meet Joseph and friends

With only a week left to go until our first live performance of our Heritage Lottery Funded Deep Pockets and Dirty Faces, we thought we’d tell a few more stories about the orphans taking centre stage on Tuesday 7th June.
