COVID-19 EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FUND
Following the ongoing devastating effects on the entertainment industry of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Seaborn, Broughton & Walford Foundation is now supporting those most in need. After discussions with the Actors' Benevolent Fund NSW (ABF), the Seaborn, Broughton & Walford Foundation has become a seed funder of the ABF's COVID 19 EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FUND.

This was done by our purchasing the Stables Theatre and the Griffin Theatre Company has benefited by having a rent free theatre (less outgoings) since 1986.
