While many businesses that had been closed due to Covid-19 pandemic were able to re-open in July, many theatres and museums have been unable to welcome visitors back.
In many cases, arts venues are either charities or not-for-profit and operate on a very small budget. With reduced revenues for the foreseeable future, there is a real danger that many beloved arts locations could be lost without proper support.
As an international supplier of protective screens, Plastic Sheets Shop wants to help. The Protective Screen Grant will provide £2,000 worth of protective screens and related products, which will be evenly split between the two chosen recipients.Jonathan Opdam
“The hope is that by supplying this protective equipment, the conversion required to host socially distanced events will be more affordable, allowing the chosen venues to reopen for a wider variety of events and take a small step towards the recovery of the arts sector.” said Plastic Sheets Shop’s Managing Partner Jonathan Opdam.
