Thank you to all those of you who came along to watch The Vicar of Dibley - The Holy Trinity in May. We had an amazing time rehearsing and performing and are very grateful to you all for supporting both Dymchurch Players and our chosen charities. Our treasurer has now finished processing the final accounts, and we are delighted to announce that we have been able to donate a further £2,700 to our charities for the year. The cheques are in the post. No really, they are!
Thank you to every single one of you who came along to watch Treasure Island. We had a great time rehearsing and performing for you and, in the process - with your help - managed to raise an impressive £3,300.00 for our chairites for this year:
Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance
Romney Marsh Day Centre
Kent Association for the Blind (Romney Marsh)

Local Charities, we need you!
Dymchurch Players have been raising money for charity since 2012 and, to date, we have raised over £39,000! We know how valuable all donations are to charities up and down the country and we are proud of our contributions and grateful to our audiences and supporters for making it possible.
However, we have decided to make a slight change and this is where you come in...
For each production we stage, the final show is a charity performance and all the money raised from tickets, raffle and donations goes to our chosen charity. Going forward we would like to split this amount so each year 50% of the charity performance money will go to our nominated charity for the year (last year was Demelza, the year before Pilgrims Hospice) and 50% will go to smaller, local (within 10 miles of Dymchurch) charities.
In order to be considered for inclusion we will require a letter outlining the charity, what it does for the people it benefits and how it achieves that. We will also require the Registered Charity number. If you know of any local charities you feel could use our support, please ask them to contact our secretary via this link
