Yellow Cat is proud to support the work of Create, the UK’s leading charity empowering lives through the creative arts. As a company that champions creativity over almost any skill, we believe that everyone should have access to some form of Creative expression. That is where Create comes in – they work across the UK with vulnerable children and adults to help them find a voice through creativity.
Create is the UK’s leading charity empowering lives through the creative arts.
Unleashing creativity ignites imaginations, develops confidence and builds relationships. Like setting off a firework, Create’s professional artists light the touch paper and the participants discover new found self-belief and a desire to try more, do more and be more.
Create is a national charity that champions local priorities by collaborating with different partners to tailor every project to each individual’s needs. They believe that everyone – regardless of circumstances, behaviour, age, gender, race or disability – deserves the chance to fulfil their potential.
One spark of creative energy opens up a world of positive opportunities. Create lights that spark.

Yellow Cat are extremely proud to partner with Create on their Create the Difference membership scheme, now running into the second year of support.
Jonny and Magda chose Create back in 2019 to be the charity to help fulfil our Corporate Responsibility goals, engaging the Yellow Cat employees and connecting with customers and like-minded organisations. Jonny has attended a couple of workshops; one being a Film-making session with young adult carers in West London, and the other a Photography session with adults experiencing ill mental health from East London on one of their Create Live! projects (a remote workshop).
Jonny raves about both experience and his quote: “Better than I ever imagined it would be. A world of fun. So A+++ on all fronts” was used in their latest Create Live! for Business brochure.
Jonny has since joined the Development Council at Create, as of December 2019, and his biggest achievement to date has been the creation of the #CRE8IN8 Challenge, an inclusive running event where you lace up your trainers and get ready to run every day for 8 consecutive days from 1-8 August. You choose your distance: either 800 metres, 8 kilometres or 8 half-marathons, and then get your friends and family to sponsor you, and change lives with Create. In 2020 Create raised over £13,000 from the #CRE8IN8 event and this year Jonny and the team are hoping for much, much more.
