October 2017 Newsletter
Oh my goodness what an amazingly busy time at Dreamers this month!!
Auditions are ongoing for our next show Aladdin and some of the parts have been offered to our older Dreamers already.
Friday 20th will be auditions for some of the smaller parts and for our under 9’s.
We will then break for the half term and all are due back on 3rd November where rehearsals will begin.
Sponsorship and Fundraising
Stop! Wait! dont order through Amazon or buy from Ebay!! Please help us to raise funds without it costing you a penny!
We are continually on the lookout for sponsorship and fundraising so that we can keep Dreamers open to all.
We have signed up for Easyfundraising. This is a way that you can support us without it costing you a penny and every time you use the internet to shop!!!
Easy as 1.2.3…How it works
- Set up a login for Easyfundraising
- Shop online with all the big names
- You pay nothing extra but Dreamers will get a small percentage of the sale.
You can send the link through facebook and get all your friends and family using it!!!!
Any problems speak to Kathy on 07870 676101
Family Fun Race Night
You don’t need to know a thing about racing to join in the fun!
We are holding a family fun Race Night on Friday 17th November at the Thrapston Sports Association
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.
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.

We shall be placing a new clothing order on Monday October 30th. All clothing can be ordered on our website and paid for through PayPal or using any credit or debit card through the PayPal link.

Thanks for Philip King at Silverbrook Web Design for his patience, free help and support with setting up the Dreamers website shop.
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 learnt their lines and no matter how nervous managed to stand up in front of a panel of judges and audition for our next show.
You were all amazing, incredible, confident, believable, inspiring! We believe in you ….. Let’s build an audience!!
