Here come the girls!
Our 'Calendar Girls' live on stage March 12 - 16
This very special play by Tim Firth - full of laughter and maybe a few tears - is selling well, and we're delighted to welcome some group bookings from organisations including the Women's Institutes of Linton and Burton Belles and a party from the business networking group Women In Rural Enterprises (WiRE Burton and WiRE Lichfield).
As you know, the ladies of Little Theatre Company created their own 2013 Calendar Girls-style calendar. But our girls haven't stopped their fund-raising. During show week there will be buckets on the bar collecting donations and a raffle each night for prizes including items signed by the professional touring cast of Calendar Girls including Ruth Madoc, Lesley Joseph, Kacey Ainsworth and Camilla Dallerup. The girls are also crocheting calendar girl dolls to raise funds.
If you missed getting a calendar - you may also be able to snap up a souvenir copy during show week in return for a donation.
Because so many ladies are in the show and backstage we COULD use some extra help from friends of LTC who would be prepared to help sell raffle tickets in the bar before the show and during the interval. If you can help please email firstname.lastname@example.org and she'll pass your contact details on to Kay St Clair who is organising a front of house rota for the week.
The girls have set a target of raising £2,500 for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and have already passed the half way mark.
Donations can still be made at their JustGiving Page and you can donate £1 by text by simply texting "BCGS90 £1" to 70070. All the money raised goes to help in the fight against blood cancers.
Thanks to EVERYONE who has supported our fund-raising so far. To check ticket availability for the play, ring the Brewhouse on 01283-508100 or LTC's box office on 01283-542446.
