Before Christmas I organised two very well worthy fundraising events in aid of the Ascension Day Fair 2014.

Before Christmas I organised two very well worthy fundraising events in aid of the Ascension Day Fair 2014. I would like to express my sincere thanks to the following people who helped me in any small or large way to make this possible.

THANK YOU TO:-
All the cast who took time out to come to rehearsals at such a busy time of the year, without you this performance could not have appeared on the stage – also to Christiane for operating the curtains and Claudia and Casey for keeping the girls “company” not forgetting Penny, Linda and Dalia for sorting the mini dancers and Cheryl Henry for helping with the kiddies before the show
To Kirsty Anthony for her artistic skills and producing the scenery with a teeny weeny help from her little elves……..Alec and Anthony
To Robert Anthony for the setting of the singer’s stand, cat-walk, Stable and setting of stage and helping me to clean up the next day
To Sue and Frances Dixon for all their help
To AIG for fitting of lights and loan of chairs
To Chris, Patrick, Johnny, Mario, & Shavarn (all who help with sound, music, projector op and videographer)
To St. Mary’s Church for loan of PA system
To Obsidian for loan of speakers and stands
To Two Boats School for loan of mikes, spot lights, gowns and for the loan of the school bus for rehearsals
To Carl and Godfrey my elves who sorted the greenery
To Freda, Nicola, Sharon and Susie for holding the “money box” out to the audience
To all who donated towards the Food Hamper, entrance fee and raffle
To Elaine , Sam and team for the cooking and selling of the food

If anyone is missed—it’s not deliberate but you know who you are. Without each and everyone of you we could not bring a Christmas Cheer to Ascension Island.
