Litton Cheney’s Got Talent fundraiser will boost charity coffers

Tricia Gates and her mum

A community variety show featuring musicians, actors and dancers will be held in Litton Cheney to raise money for Dementia UK
and Thorners School Association.
Organiser Tricia Gates was inspired to set up the fundraising show after losing her mother Joyce Baker to dementia late last
The show is taking place at Litton and Thorners Community Hall (LATCH) on Saturday, October 8 from 6.30pm.
Some of the show’s proceeds will go to Dementia UK’s Closer to Home project, which helps provide help to families
affected by dementia.
Tricia said: “I staged a similar community variety show in the village around five years ago which was hugely successful on a number of fronts.
“Therefore, when I recently lost my mother to dementia, through this difficult time, I have established a volunteer fundraising relationship with Dementia UK in aid of their Closer to Home project.
“From the success of the previous event, I am now organising a second show with the proceeds to be shared between Thorners Primary School in the village and the Admiral Nurses, who are directly connected to the Closer to Home project.”
The line-up for the Litton Cheney show includes Bridport Youth Dance, Burton Bradstock Players, actress Audrey Gates, church organist Paul Cheater and musicians Alan Hooley and Becci Taylor. Thorners Primary School pupils will open the show with a musical act.
The show will have cabaret style seating with a complimentary glass of wine on arrival and free tea or coffee served during the
interval. There will also be a fundraising raffle with prizes donated by local businesses. Audience members will also be invited to choose the winner of a photography competition, with the theme for submissions being: Life in the Bride Valley Today.
