FRIENDS OF SHANKLIN THEATRE SUPPORT FUND
Better known as 'The Bucket Collection'
Alana Bird, Co-ordinator FOST Support Fund-Bucket collection.
An update on our Bucket Collection initiative from Alana.
I am pleased to report on another great year for the Bucket collection and would like to pass on a huge thank you to all those who so kindly donated to our buckets this year.
The Bucket collection total for the year ending in April 2016, as announced at the FOST AGM, was £20,471.21. This is only for eleven months as we were closed for maintenance and repairs in January.
Since we started the Bucket collection back in June 2011 we have now reached a massive £88,970.00!!
All the money raised is put to good use, but even more is still needed for future projects such as replacing the theatre windows and repairing the external canopy above the foyer steps etc.
Our new target is now £100,000, so we will be there at all the shows with our buckets at the ready!!!
