Stagehand was launched over two decades ago and is the only UK charity specifically dedicated to providing hardship funding for music stage crew who have fallen on tough times. Mike Lowe, Chair of Stagehand’s Board of Trustees, comments “The livelihoods of people working in live music productions has been decimated by the effects of Covid-19. Every day we hear from people who are struggling and Stagehand is raising funds to help those in most need, with the simple aim of helping to keep roofs over heads and food on tables.”
