Week 28 – Our member raising funds for children with special educational needs

The Hidden Needs Trust CHARITY Concert
Monday MARCH 18th 2019 – 7:30 pm


Just Take That

Take That Tribute Band, who have featured on BBC with Graham Norton, will take you on a journey of Take That’s, Gary Barlow’s and Robbie Williams’ biggest hits spanning 30 years.
A must for any Take That fan.

The concert will raise money for Special Educational Needs Children in DORSET and SOMERSET.
TICKETS are only £20!  PURCHASED from the Octagon Theatre Box Office.
Why not purchase some tickets for friends, family and colleagues?

THE HIDDEN NEEDS TRUST was set up by myself, Rachel Goodfellow, in 2015 to help raise funds for SEN children and the very specialist pre-school OPPORTUNITY GROUPS that support them, their families/carers.

Between 2015 and 2017, over £25,000 was raised, shared between the Opportunity Groups…of which there are only 2 in Dorset and 2 in Somerset!  PLUS £17,000 of cuts that were to be made to one of the opportunity groups was overturned…meaning that the group still remains open to this day. The group has had YET ANOTHER OUTSTANDING OFSTED report.

Somerset Community Foundation handle all my finances and match fund raised monies where possible.   As well as fundraising I spread awareness about what issues SEN children and their families face, what difficulties the specialist pre-school opportunity groups are having with funding and cuts, and what we as a community can do to help.

To bring the community together, with schools (I have already contacted local schools and colleges), businesses and public all coming to support SEN children, their families and the AMAZING WORK ALL our schools and colleges do for their SEN pupils/students!

There are 622 seats to fill! Between us let us fill them all!

I am also looking for SPONSORS for the following…
1. £964 to cover the theatre cost.
2. £515 to cover the theatre brochure full page spread.
3. £810 to cover the band.
4. £650 to cover ticket printing and the 3.5% costs if tickets are brought via card.
If anyone can help with some of these expenses it will mean…if all 622 seats go…HNT will have raised a whopping £12,440…before any additional donations!
I do hope that you all get involved. The concert will be lively, full of fun and have some additional surprises!

In addition, direct donations and raffle prizes are always very welcome
Cheques payable to Hidden Needs Trust can be posted to
Halfway House Farm, Yeovil Road, Sherborne DT9 4PX
