A theatre company has been named charity of the year by a shopping centre.

Haringey Shed, in Tottenham, has been chosen by The Mall Wood Green, High Road, for its ‘no auditions’ programme to ensure that people of all ability and background are included.

The company has delivered performing arts workshops in Haringey and borough across London for 15 years and regularly runs “Shed Jam” nights, film projects and a summer trip for schools, nurseries and community centres in the area.

Last year, The Mall Wood Green raised more than £5000 for its 2015 Charity of the Year, Brooks Farm, and it is hoped that the “fundraising success” will continue with this year’s chosen charity.
