Help the underprivileged experience the wonder that is the theatre!!
One of the goals of Sharon and Linda is to have as many disadvantaged children attend their annual show as is possible. But to do this they require financial and other support to achieve the goal.
The many heartbreaking letters of appreciation received from the children who have had the opportunity to attend a show has been the motivation to keep this an ongoing project over the years. Many companies and individuals have contributed in terms of financial support over the years to sponsor tickets. Others have sponsored the cost of transport to the theatre while others have sponsored sweets and cold-drinks for the children.
Sharon estimates that at least 300 children per year have benefited from this project and both her and Linda have been overwhelmed by the looks on the faces of the children prior to each show as well as afterwards when they – in many cases, if not all – have had their first theatrical experience! Children have even just been fascinated by the lighting of the show! No matter what, they have all walked out smiling!
Companies or individuals now have the opportunity to bring hope and especially FUN into the life of a child, even if just for 3 hours! Tickets for sponsorship are R80 per child. This will ensure that the cost of transport to the theatre is covered as well as providing sweets and juice for each child. But any donation – whether financial or in the form of sweets / juices – will be welcomed.
The major Benefactors will be the children of Walmer Township, Helenvale and Missionvale but if we are successful in our sponsorship drive then other disadvantaged areas can be targeted.
And you don’t have to be in South Africa to support this drive!! Foreign donations will be accepted!!
We will post regular updates on who has contributed as well as the number of children that are being sponsored. After the show, we will post pictures of the excited faces of the children. Your kindness will be recognized at all times. The studio’s Facebook page as well as it’s website http://rotherswaindrama.weebly.com will be used for this purpose. Sponsors will also be listed in the programme.
Every little bit helps – we have also asked all the cast members to contribute towards this venture by just giving up their tuckshop money for a day and donating it towards a food pack for a child.
Help Sharon and Linda achieve their goal of once again having at least 300 children (hopefully more!!) from the disadvantaged areas of Port Elizabeth attend the 2015 show by contributing. You can contact Sharon on 082 774 9083 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org - she will be able to provide you with banking details for contributions. All contributions must be referenced and receipts will be issued for all financial donations.
