Our Mission Statement

Charlotte Leather barrow

All too often the performing arts are seen as a luxury and just for entertainment. Charlotte performed with such passion, grace and confidence, she commanded the attention and respect of her audience, and for her it wasn’t a luxury, it was life changing.

Charlotte was living her dream, she lived life to the full, but her life was cut short.

Help us turn our tragedy into hope for other young performers.

Help us build a legacy that Charlotte would be proud of.

Thank you.

The Charlotte Leatherbarrow Foundation helps talented 8 to 16 year olds who don’t have the means to realise their potential in the performing arts.

Our aim is to help provide training and support for young performers, both as an artist and an individual, so they can flourish in a challenging and competitive world.
