FRIENDS OF SHANKLIN THEATRE SUPPORT FUND
Better known as 'The Bucket Collection'

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!!!

SUCCESS BREEDS SUCCESS

When we asked “Do you think that Shanklin, and indeed the Isle of Wight deserves to have a facility like Shanklin Theatre?” you responded in your hundreds. There is no doubt that without the influence of FOST (Friends of Shanklin Theatre), the Theatre would no longer exist.

Shanklin Theatre has gone from strength to strength with more and more shows and productions with a vast variety, from Pantomime to Murder Mysteries and from Solo Monologues to full Broadway representations. With more ‘on stage’ productions we need even more ‘off stage’ help from the volunteers from the Friends. There is room for YOU, we would welcome YOU and YOU CAN help!

Please consider being a "friend" of Shanklin Theatre and for a very small subscription you can join our gang; or perhaps consider being a patron.

Have you got time to spare? Want to do something useful? Want to meet and make new friends? If you would like to take a more active role, please consider becoming a "volunteer". There are lots of ways you can get involved.
