Who are we?
Stage Spiders is a student-led volunteering group at the University of Kent which runs projects for children and youth across Canterbury. These projects include: working in primary schools and nurseries; performing plays for local children; and storytelling.
We believe that encouraging confidence, creativity and positivity in children is immensely important for their development. Our projects aim to expand these social skills in children through the medium of drama, storytelling, arts and crafts, and games.
In 2010, 2011 and 2012, we won the award for the "Best Student Led Volunteer Group". In 2014, we even won the award for the "Best Fundraising Event"!
The new year is just about to begin, so we are currently looking for new volunteers and potential new projects to work on. Whether you are a new student looking to meet new people, a local business looking for volunteers or a charity looking for donations, we have a place for you.
