May 2013

On behalf of One Place Dengie Project Trust, may I thank you and the Vamp til Ready team who provided the wonderful fund-raising evening on Saturday 27th April 2013.

It was an evening full of entertainment, beautiful singing and plenty of laughter delivered by a very professional group who clearly knew how to entertain to a high standard. The variety, costume and stage presence was truly superb, with never a dull moment and the audience left eager for more. Everyone in attendance was left in no doubt that they had witnessed a very experienced performance from very accomplished artistes and, certainly, I picked up on the many requests to "let them know when another show is planned".

As an organisation, we are extremely grateful for your support and, in particular, for the time and commitment you all kindly made. The organisation is currently struggling in this financial climate and, with the many changes to the adult social care system, we are so grateful for support such as this. The monies raised (830) will help towards repairing or replacing one of the two vehicles which we use on a daily basis to transport our clients to the health and well being centre. Unfortunately, both vehicles became unroadworthy at the same time, causing some major operational problems which we are obviously keen to resolve quickly. I am sure you can appreciate that many of our clients are older people, many of whom rarely go out or see others. Therefore, a trip to the centre can be the only form of contact or interaction; the opportunity for a nourishing cooked hot meal and a chance to take part in a range of activities, many of which are designed to prevent falls, maintain mobility and provide mental and physical stimulation.

Knowing that your contribution has made such a difference, I would like to thank you once again, and I wish you every success in your future performances which, I know, will be thoroughly enjoyed by all who attend.

Best Wishes,

Jacqueline Sinden
Chief Officer
