I'm sure you are all aware, Thurso Players is currently raising
funds in order to carry out some essential repairs to the Mill Roof.
We are arranging a number of fundraising events over the next few
months, and one of the first is the annual Sunday Sesh at Skinandis
on 26th May 2013. This event has been held on the Sunday before the
late May Holiday for the last few years. Each year two local
Charities benefit from this event, this Year it is Thurso Players
and Thurso Youth Club. In exchange for getting a share of the
"profits" we have to supply a number of volunteers. The duties will
mostly revolve around manning the door to take money, jackets and
coats, and sell raffle tickets. There will also be volunteers
required to help out in entertaining children during the afternoon
session. Obviously the more volunteers we have have, the less time
any one person will have to spend taking door money etc.
The event runs from 1400 until midnight, with a sort of break
between the children's session and the later session, although
Skinandis will not be closed, and will require to bemannedby
volunteers all day.
If you would like to volunteer, could you contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
the first instance, and let me know you are interested, and whether
you have any preference as to what time of day you would be
available. Also if you could contact me on this address if you have
any questions. I have attached a list of potentialquestionsand
answers to this e:mail so it should hopefullyanswermany
of your concerns.
The Sunday Sesh has traditionally been a very good fundraiser for
the Charities involved, so I do hope as many Thurso Players Members
as possible are able to devote an hour or two of their time to
Thanks in anticipation,
