Profits from our productions go to various local charities and this year, in spite of some less than ideal weather conditions, we managed to raise over 1000. Many thanks go to our audiences, who braved the conditions and supported the raffles. We will be distributing our proceeds to:-
  • GAFIRS (Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service)
  • The 17th Century Village
  • Mayor of Gosport's appeal
  • Christ Church, Gosport
  • St Matthews Church, Netley Marsh
  • MacMillan Cancer Appeal
