We are a victim of our own success and now need more space in our award-winning theatre. To our cramped backstage area, we need to add another dressing room which will particularly benefit our youth theatre and comply with present legal requirements, as well as a rehearsal area and storage space.
By dint of ticket sales of our successful shows and intensive fund-raising, the members have raised a substantial amount of money – but building costs being what they are – we need more!
Since launching our fund-raising drive at the Gala evening at the Theatre in October, 2016, the following has been raised:
A GRANT FROM THE FOYLE FOUNDATION OF £25,000.
A GRANT FROM THE WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF GROCERS OF £5,000.
A GRANT FROM THE GEOFF AND FIONA SQUIRE FOUNDATION OF £2,500.
A GRANT FROM THE WALTER GUINNESS CHARITABLE TRUST OF £1,000.
A GRANT FROM THE SALISBURY AREA BOARD OF £5,000.
DONATIONS BY STUDIO MEMBERS: £35,899.70 PLUS GIFT AID
DONATIONS BY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC, LOCAL ORGANISATIONS, TRUSTS AND BUSINESSES: £8,830 PLUS GIFT AID WHERE APPLICABLE.
FUND-RAISING EVENTS, GALAS ETC: £2,250+
TOGETHER WITH THE PROCEEDS FROM OUR SUCCESSFUL PRODUCTIONS, WE HAVE £160,000 TOWARDS THE LONG-ANTICIPATED BUILDING EXTENSION.
** BUILDING WORK HAS COMMENCED AND FOUNDATIONS ARE PRESENTLY BEING EXCAVATED – AN EXCITING TIME!
BUT FUND-RAISING CONTINUES APACE;
DURING THE WONDERFUL WEEK OF THE RUN OF LES MISERABLES (SCHOOLS EDITION) 19 – 24 FEBRUARY 2018, WE HELD A SPECIAL GALA NIGHT BEFORE THE SHOW ON FRIDAY 23.
FRIDAY 1 JUNE was a WINE TASTING EVENING – well attended and enjoyed.
21st JULY – a SUMMER SUPPER AND BARN DANCE WITH ENTERTAINMENT – at Studio at 7.30 p.m. WE ARE PROMISED A TERRIFIC EVENING.
Coffee mornings and Bric-a-Brac stalls continue as always.
AND OUR WORK ON RAISING GRANTS FROM CHARITABLE TRUSTS IS ON-GOING.
