Support for local theatre

In the last month, I have been aware of a special appeal to raise the funds needed to transform Lansdowne Church into Webster's Theatre. This theatre is named after stained glass designer Alf Webster whose remarkable windows feature throughout the building. The Trustees are aiming to open the entire venue on 11th April 2015.

To help raise the necessary funds, a campaign through is running until 10th February 2015. As you may be aware Crowdfunder is a new web based platform for professionally run charities to raise funds for worthwhile projects.
Giving support for the development of a local theatre in Kelvinbridge will have a positive benefit to the lives of many talented actors and sustain jobs in the creative industries. It is likely to have a wider economic impact on the local community and help create new custom for local businesses. The importance of this project in preserving the features of a unique local landmark should also be recognised.
