Small Charity Week celebrates and raises awareness of the essential work of the UK’s small charity sector who make an invaluable contribution to the lives of millions of individuals, communities and causes across the UK and the rest of the world.
To celebrate Small Charities Week in Sutton we have been talking to grassroots organisations that are making a difference in their local areas.

Subrang Arts is dedicated to the promotion and development of Asian Art and Culture. ‘Subrang’ means spectrum of colour and it represents the rich cultural heritage of the Indian Sub-Continent. What better way to express yourself than through the joys of dance! At Subrang Arts our goal is to create a welcoming environment where every student regardless of ability or skill level can learn, be confident and above all have fun while nurturing a love and respect for the art of dance. Subrang Arts believe that education and entertainment can be combined and to achieve this objective, so along with dance classes they also organise numerous cultural programmes, exhibitions, heritage projects, music concerts, talks, lectures and demonstrations. Check out their website - www.subrangarts.co.uk
