So the Chelsea’s Tour 2016 finished last Friday, myself and Cheryl Carter (PCSO for the City) have been involved in the rolling out of this production over a 3 week period. We organised a total of 33 performances to be shown in Schools and Community venues in South Cambs and Cambs City. I have just been working on the stats for South Cambs A total of 2,673 people saw the performance. We still await the City stats. Chelsea’s Choice is a hard hitting theatre play raising awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation. The make up of these people were:-
2,384 students in year 9 – together with some year 10 groups.
43 Professionals – including Social Workers, Youth Workers, Council Workers, Nurses and others.
16 Members of Cambs Police
21 Young people not attending a school setting.
The performances were greatly received by the schools and people attending the local community events.
National CSE awareness day is tomorrow – 18th March 2016
