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 £35,000.
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 WILTSHIRE AREA BOARD OF £5,000.
A GRANT FROM THE ST.JAMES PLACE FOUNDATION OF £1,000.
A GRANT FROM THE WILTON AREA BOARD OF £1,000.
A GRANT FROM SALISBURY CITY OF £5,000
A GRANT FROM AN ANONYMOUS CHARITABLE TRUST OF £10,000.
A GRANT FROM AN ANONYMOUS CHARITABLE TRUST OF £1,100.
GRANTS FROM THREE FAMILY TRUSTS INCLUDING C.A.P. TRUST £650.
A GRANT FROM THE GOVERNMENT’S RETAIL HOSPITALITY AND LEISURE GRANT FUND OF £10,000
A GRANT FROM A BEQUEST BY ELIZABETH BATTEN 0F £10,000
A GRANT FROM SALISBURY AREA BOARD OF £4,383.80
DONATIONS BY STUDIO MEMBERS: £39,775 PLUS GIFT AID

FUND-RAISING EVENTS, GALAS ETC: £4,500+
A STANDING ORDER OF £25.00 PER MONTH FROM A SUPPORTER. (A GREAT WAY TO HELP US – PLEASE CONSIDER AIDING AND ABETTING US THIS WAY)
TOGETHER WITH THE PROCEEDS FROM OUR SUCCESSFUL PRODUCTIONS, WE HAVE £270,000 TOWARDS THE LONG-ANTICIPATED BUILDING EXTENSION.
THE SHELL OF OUR IMPRESSIVE EXTENSION IS NOW COMPLETE – BUT – WE NEED TO FIT IT OUT IN ORDER FOR IT TO BE WORKABLE
SO FUND-RAISING CONTINUES APACE;
Coffee mornings, Bric-a-Brac stalls, social evenings and afternoons continue as always.
AND OUR WORK ON RAISING GRANTS FROM CHARITABLE TRUSTS IS ON-GOING.
