November 2017 Newsletter
We’ve so much to tell you about Dreamers this month!!
Rehearsals are well under way for our next show Aladdin.
There is no Dreamers on Friday 17th November but it would be great if you could join in our family fun race night, more details below.
Family Fun Race Night
Not long now to our great family race night. Please join us this Friday 17th at the Thrapston Sports Association. If you have any donations, a bottle or some chocolate, for our raffle please bring them on the night or give them to one of the Dreamers Volunteers.
We’d love to see as many Dreamers and their families there as possible but everyone is welcome.
You can sponsor a horse for £2 or a jockey for £2 or both for £4 either in advance or on the night and there will be a cash prize of £10 for the winning owner (£20 if you have the horse and the jockey)!!
You can also sponsor the race itself no extra winnings but the race will be named after you or your company for just £5 and we will put your details on our ‘thank you’d’ and website..
Each adult Dreamer helper has a race sheet so catch one of us to sponsor your horse or rider. You don’t have to be there on the night to win so please ask all your friends and family to join in too and help us raise funds and have an incredible fun night.
With a raffle and refreshments too it’s promising to be a really fun night.
Dreamers Residential Trip
Plans are continuing for our truly amazing Dreamers residential trip. This will be 2 nights away from 27th to 29th April at MacQueen house in Twywell and the cost will be £60. Places will be limited to 24 and this will be on a first come first served basis.
Bookings open online from Friday 20th October. To secure your place we will need a £25 deposit paying by the 30th November 2017. If you’d like any more information please speak to Lindsay.
Christmas lights switch on
Please come and see us on our Christmas stall at the Thrapston lights switch on. We will have some fun fairground games for you to come and try as well as some things to buy. We will also be performing on the night, more details of this to follow.

Our ‘Big Thank You’s’ this month go to
A big thank you goes to Thrapston Sports Association for the free hire of the club for this week’s Family fundraising race night. We must also mention our very own Laura for organising and arranging this evening and the Dreamers volunteers for their help and hopefully you and your Dreamer for attending!!! There are lots of local businesses that have supported us with prizes and we will give a roundup of those in our next newsletter.
Thanks to Thrapston Farm and Garden for their help with materials urgently needed for our stage and scenery.
Thanks for Philip King at Silverbrook Web Design for his patience, free help and support with the maintenance of the Dreamers website.
To all the Dreamers adult volunteers who give up so much of their time, we couldn’t do without you all!
And last but by no means least a shout out this month for all our amazing Dreamers who have started the process of learning their lines and their dances.
You are all amazing, incredible, confident, believable, inspiring! We believe in you ….. Let’s build an audience!!
