£1000 donation made to MacMillan Cancer Support

We are delighted to announce that the profit made from One Night Only at the Embassy Theatre was a massive £1000!  The cheque has been handed over to Shirley Atherton, who is the Chairman of Skegness MacMillan Cancer Support.

Four in ten people in the UK will suffer from cancer in some form during their lives, and therefore it is vital for Macmillan to raise funhds to help as many people as possible, not only with the famous Macmillan nurses, but with doctors, help groups, help lines, information lines, and palliative care in conjunction with other local hospice organisations.

Thank you to everyone who supported our show; we look forward to seeing you all next time!

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Thank you to everyone who supported us on 24 February.  We hope you enjoyed our singing and dancing, and appreciated the variety of songs and styles which we performed.

Watch this space; we will soon be able to announce how much we raised for MacMillan Cancer Support.

Next year’s show will be at the Embassy Theatre, from 14 to 16 March 2013; details to be announced soon!

Only one week to go!

Songs have been learned, routines practised, costumes prepared – we just need an audience now!

Please tell everyone you know what a fabulous show this is going to be.  All of the profits are going to a great cause, MacMillan Cancer Care, so we need to fill the theatre.

Latest news from SMTC

Firstly, I am pleased to announce that Paul Johnson has taken up the position of Vice Chairman.   Paul is an enthusiastic committee member, and we are certain that he will work hard on behalf of the society.  We are also delighted to welcome Sandy Chapman to the committee; Sandy has attended her first meeting, and is already contributing and working hard.  We still have one vacancy, so please speak to any committee member if you are interested.

The committee has decided that all profits from our 2012 show will go to MacMillan Cancer Support.    To help promote our show we will also perform at the MacMillan Strictly Come Dancing night at the Southview Hotel on Saturday 12 November.  We will sing excerpts from our show, between 7.00 and 7.30 pm, while guests are arriving for their welcome drink.  Please make sure you attend rehearsals between now and then, and make yourself available for Saturday 12 November, so we can put on a good preview performance.

If anyone would like tickets for the Strictly Come Dancing Night, there are still some available.  The tickets cost £30 and include a three course carvery, entertainment by Sid Dennis, plus two local singers, the Macmillan Top Toe Tappers, and disco.  The highlight of the night will be five local amateur couples competing for the Strictly trophy!  Speak to Sandra for more information.

Look forward to seeing you all on Monday evenings, 7.15 at Seathorne School.  Watch this space for rehearsal schedules – Lisa will be joining us soon so there will be some dance rehearsals in October.
