A Wisbech drama club aim to help bring people together after making the change to a Community Interest Company (CIC).
LEADA Cambs was originally launched in 2012 when Linda Ekins, who previously taught the RATz drama club, created the Linda Ekins Academy of Dramatic Arts which runs at the Queen Mary Centre.
After six successful years, she has now taken the next step to evolve the business into a CIC.
It is similar to a charity but must raise funds with all profits re-invested into the company, which will further benefit the community.
The transition to CIC also brings other LEADA projects under the same umbrella – Linda also runs the Viva La Voce adult singing class, who recently performed at Responsible Business Awards at the Royal Albert Hall.

“As a CIC, we can give everybody the opportunity to engage with the dramatic arts,” Linda said.
“In an area with such a diverse population as Wisbech, offering opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to engage with each other generates inclusion and understanding. What better role is there?”
