Musical fundraising event
The Kaleidoscope Childrens Centres in Kingsholm and Elmbridge, Gloucester, are hosting a musical fundraising event on September 29, 2012, 8pm until midnight, to raise money for outdoor play equipment.
Renowned Gloucestershire band, The Revolvers, are headlining the musical extravaganza that is being hosted at Dowtys Sports and Social Club in Churchdown, alongside local DJ Dave>T. To try and raise further funds, a number of high profile local businesses and organisations have donated prizes to be raffled off.
Prizes include speciality coffees from Ethical Addictions Coffee, first-class train tickets on Great Western Railways and pantomime tickets from The Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham.
Tickets are available from the Kaleidoscope Childrens Centre, Sherborne Street, Kingsholm, or via the phone on 01452 520182. One of the organisers, Claire Dewick, said they are passionate about trying to help the Centres by raising additional funds to support children and families in the local community, helping to make a real difference to their lives.
Speaking about the event, Kaleidoscope Acting Centre Manager Lucinda Field said, We have never before attempted this type of fundraising event and we are looking forward to a great night. I have to thank the whole community for coming together and helping make this happen and also all of the people who have already bought tickets.
Ian Meredith from Ethical Addictions Coffee said, We are proud to be helping the Centres. They are a valuable part of our community, and by donating a prize for the fundraising we hope that we can play a part in raising enough money to help with the play equipment.
Tickets went on sale just two weeks ago and members of the public are encouraged to get in touch to purchase theirs to be part of the special event.
