The Geri Crooke Trust

On the 17th June 2019 a treasured team member and deeply loved friend died in a car accident. Geri was such an important part of the 20Twenty family and she will never be forgotten. This trust is designed not only to keep all of our memories of Geri alive and vivid, but also to help more disadvantaged children and young people access what was, or is, Geri’s passion. The theatre.

Geri

Geri was herself a trained actress. Geri used her skills to support hundreds of children and young people within both our school projects and our own Youth Theatres. Our theatres flourished due to Geri's love of the theatre and her boundless care and commitment to all of the children and young people that attended any of the theatre groups. Geri’s Song is a fundraising event where the money raised will be placed in to the Geri Crooke Trust.

LAMDA and connections

Geri also delivered our LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) sessions to a consistently high standard. This was evident in the high pass rate of the children that entered. However, Geri's baby was our Connections Festival Theatre group who she nurtured from the start with her director partner, Glen.

The purpose of the trust

The Geri Crooke Trust will therefore support children and young people that cannot afford to go to the theatre but would like to watch a theatre productions or children who want to take LAMDA qualifications but cannot afford the fees.

Support the Geri Crooke Trust
