Director of China Pearl Fenfen Huang said, ' we are very grateful to all the support we have received. We are honoured to be one of the 46 organisations in UK who won BBC Performing Arts Fund and be supported by The Co-operative Membership Community Fund. It is the third time we have received funding from Merseyside Police Authority since last time. It means a lot for us, as Chinese arts are not celebrated and known as widely as other cultures like African or Indian. With the funding, we can organise Chinese artistic and creative events to promote Chinese culture which we are very passionate about and proud of. Without their help, the project would not go ahead. At the same time, I feel that China Pearl's work has been recognised and appreciated, which is a really nice thing for us.'
