Raise funds for the Roof

Saltburn Community Theatre & HallHello everyone, I went to teach Yoga at Saltburn Community Hall, Albion Terrace, this morning (20th March 2007) to be told that thieves had stolen the lead off the roof, leading to a badly leaking roof, vandalism that will cost something in the region of £10,000 to repair.

Unfortunately although heavily insured, vandalism is not covered.

So with the help of anyone interested I am arranging a fundraising event on Sunday 15th April between 2pm-6pm, all monies raised will be given to the Roof Fund.

The event will run something like this.....

Yoga for Children
Yoga for Adults

Treatments of: Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Reiki

Coffee and Tea with lashings of scones and cakes (any budding bakers out there that would like to contribute?)

A sponsored event to follow on another date (108 rounds of Surya Namaskara..........not necessarily all in one go), I can email you a sponsor form.

This hopes to be a good healthy fun afternoon, if you would like to get involved, in any guise, please email me by clicking here.

You may like to help with....
-poster making
-poster distribution
-coffee bar support
-talking to the press/radio
-giving treatments
-making tickets
-selling tickets
-coming to this event and bringing your friends
-shouting and screaming at the top of your lungs about this event to the people in your street.

Your support is greatly needed, however small.
Thank you, love Lesley Wood, (Yoga Teacher)

The Community Hall has re-opened for use after temporary repairs were made following thieves stripping the roof of lead.

Saltburn's Community and Arts Association is expected to launch an appeal for help to repair the roof which was not insured for vandalism.

Meanwhile the Association has received many offers of help. As well as the event organised by Yoga teacher Lesley Wood,committee member Ivor Surtees started his own collection - with a bucket - at Wednesday's weekly bridge club run by the local University of the Third Age U3A in the hall. Jane Hesletine, of the Little Nippers playgroup, put the bucket on a table at the groups Wednesday.
Marske firm Cleveland Technologies Ltd has offered to buy three security lights and make a £100 donation.

A gig by Father Ted TV series actor Michael Redmond at the Community Theatre (which has been unaffected by the flooding) on Wednesday April 25 has now become a benefit evening for the fund. Promoter Rob O’Connor of media & PR service Ten Past Eight is donating all profits from the event to the fund. Doors & Bar: 7.15pm . Show begins: ten past eight. The £8 tickets are available from Saltburn Health Foods, Station Buildings , Saltburn, or can be reserved by email at: tickets@tenpasteight.co.uk
