We are looking for some lovely volunteers:
People to help Laura with fundraising:. The most important thing is help with writing grant bids. I'm autistic and tend to get in a muddle with what some of the more ambiguous questions mean - I am terrible for thinking they mean something else - or how to word things in a way funders like, in their form word counts. I can talk passionately about the group and our work for hours but not in a way that works for forms, it seems. I also have dyscalculia and get in a muddle when I am asked for a detailed spreadsheet instead of a simple budget written on word and checked on my calculator! Someone good at writing funder-speak and spreadsheets to help me would be a godsend.
Someone good at British Sign Language. We like to do an education pack alongside each show, free on our website for people to access, and one of those things, is a video of "ten words from the show, in BSL". I don't speak BSL, and the person who used to do them has moved away. This can be done from home (using plain wall and a phone camera) or we can do it in Brixham at the community centre where we rehearse. We aim do three or four of these short videos per year usually so there isn't loads of time commitment needed.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you can possibly help, to discuss further.
Thank you so much.
A huge thank you to the lovely Rich Sandford (AKA Massala in our production of Ben Hur) who came to rehearsals hours early and spent loads of time and energy, unasked, tidying up the area outside the community centre which we hire twice a week for rehearsals. This will be lovely for people in all the groups and church groups that use the community centre, not just us.
