Charities Supported In Prior Years


Chiltern Shakespeare Company supported Woodrow High House in Amersham.

Woodrow High House, located just outside Amersham, is a residential centre based in a 17th century manor house. It belongs to the charity London Youth, whose mission it is to support young people to become the best that they can be.

Every year, Woodrow welcomes over 7000 young people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, many from local schools and youth groups. We engage with children and support them to learn through the fun of outdoor activities. Our learning outcomes demonstrate that we help young people to:

Improve their self-confidence and belief Overcome challenges and see them through Develop the ability to work as a team and solve problems Take on leadership roles and reflect on their actions

"The funds raised through the generous support of the Chiltern Shakespeare Company and its customers will enable us to develop a high ropes course, specifically designed to encourage young people to work together and overcome challenges" said Martin Curtis, Head of Centre. "Young people leave Woodrow with happy memories that will stay with them forever."

Woodrow High House is a dynamic space for youth work and training, sports development, drama and dance workshops, offering opportunities for personal and social development.
