Over the last few years Dymchurch Players have made one show of each production into a charity event, where all monies from tickets, raffles and programme sales plus collection boxes across all nights go to our nominated charity for the year.
This endeavour was made more poignant following the diagnosis of Mark Head, one of our longest serving members, previous Chairman and a great champion for the Players, with cancer in 2012.
The amounts we have raised, with the help and unwavering support of our incredible audiences, are as follows:
2011/12 Demelza House £2,000
2012/13 Cancer Research £5,700
2013/14 Pilgrims Hospice £5,000
Cancer Research £2,500
2014/15 MacMillan £4,000
2015/16 Cancer Research £3,000
2016/17 Cancer Research £7,988
2017/18 Pilgrims Hospice £4,300
2018 Demelza House £3,200
Demelza House £1,350
2019 Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance £1,650.00
Romney Marsh Day Centre £825.00
Kent Association for the Blind (Romney Marsh) £825.00
We're sure you'll agree that this is a fantastic amount of money and we thank all those who bought tickets, donated prizes, purchased programmes and gave so generously from the bottom of our hearts.
