A theatre group is appealing for help to continue its work in the borough.

Cloudburst was formed in 2011 to give people aged 60 and over the chance to meet with like-minded people to write, perform and co-ordinate performances.

We do not get regular grants from local or national sources so what we raise through pledges will help to keep us going

Cloudburst spokesperson

Now they have launched a funding drive to help cover their costs and keep producing local productions.

An initial target of £750 has been set, with gifts on offer depending on the size of the donation.

A group spokesperson said: “All of this activity costs money which is why we are crowdfunding.

“We all pay a weekly and annual subscription out of our pensions but the cost of hiring rehearsal and performance venues, obtaining and creating props and costumes, and maintaining our other technical equipment all takes its toll on the bank balance.

“We do not get regular grants from local or national sources so what we raise through pledges will help to keep us going.”

The group meets every Tuesday at 1pm at Marden Residents’ Club.
