The­atre fundraiser for the sweet tooth

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

The thought of the fa­mous Krispy Kreme donuts avail­able lo­cally has ‘sweet tooths’ ex­cited.

The new De­niliquin The­atre Group is tak­ing or­ders for the pop­u­lar treat to raise funds for a lo­cal pro­duc­tion of ‘Alice in Won­der­land’ in Novem­ber.

Mem­bers have al­ready re­ceived a tremen­dous re­sponse, tak­ing down a num­ber of Krispy book­ings from the com­mu­nity.

Any­one in­ter­ested has un­til July 20 to fill out their or­der form which can be picked up from lo­cal busi­ness Im­per­a­tive Apps in Cressy St, and the donuts will ar­rive for pick-up at noon on Au­gust 4 at the De­niliquin Sports Sta­dium.

Im­per­a­tive Apps director An­thony My­att and his wife Sara came up with the idea af­ter notic­ing Krispy Kreme of­fer spe­cial prices for fundrais­ers.

Mr My­att said they thought this would be a good change from the usual fundrais­ers.

‘‘It’s not the clas­sic barbecue or choco­late boxes peo­ple nor­mally do.

‘‘My wife and I got in­volved with the group out of in­ter­est and moved into a more ad­min­is­tra­tive role which is why we are run­ning the fundraiser.

‘‘I will be head­ing down to Melbourne the night be­fore and pick­ing them up fresh in the morn­ing to bring back,’’ he said.

Or­ders for a dozen orig­i­nal cost $20 and as­sorted $24.

De­niliquin Ro­tary Club is also fur­ther­ing the The­atre Group’s cause, do­nat­ing $500 last week.

The­atre Group or­gan­iser Sam Wil­lis said they were over­whelmed with the do- na­tion from Ro­tary’s Martin Wilmshurst.

‘‘Martin said he was part of a the­atre group when he was younger and I think with his back­ground he un­der­stands how much it means for kids to be a part of a pro­duc­tion.

‘‘We have bud­geted about $2000 for the pro­duc­tion to cover the rights of the play, cos­tumes and other costs,’’ he said.
