the tommy vine fund
What's it all about?
The Tommy Vine Fund was set up in March 2013 after the sudden death of 24 year old actor Tommy Vine. Tommy's credits include 'Beautiful Thing' and 'The Country Wife' at Royal Exchange Manchester, 'A Touch of Cloth' for Sky, 'Top Boy' for C4, and 'Casualty' for BBC. He was a kind, generous, and encouraging friend.
What do we do?
We hold events with the purpose of showcasing the talents of those that may not otherwise have the opportunity to show them off!
We give away bursaries in order to aid creatives to go forth with their projects.
We provide a support system to young creatives and encourage those with the arts less readily available to them to also follow their dreams.
Our motto: 'DON'T THINK JUST LET IT FLOW!'
"Once I saw what the fund was for it just made sense you know - helping people being creative. That’s where I came from you know. It’s so people can express themselves creatively and artistically. This fits perfectly with me."
