THE YEOMEN OF THE GUARD

Severnside Theatre Ensemble's most ambitious undertaking to date took place on Saturday June 24th, 2006. The Gaiety Theatre & Opera House, Douglas, Isle of Man, is probably the finest Victorian theatre in the British Isles. STE, under Music Director Ian Pattison, presented a special one-night only Charity Gala Performance of The Yeomen of the Guard in aid of Hospice Care, the Isle of Man's leading charity.

A HUGE MANX THANX!!

Hello to everyone who took part in "Yeomen I.O.M." I can now tell you all that the total amount that we raised for Hospice Care stands at a

FANTASTIC £1558.24

I can't thank you enough for all your support for what I'm sure you will all agree was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. For me, arrangements and concert aside, I am so glad that everyone had a really good time and got to see a little of this magnificent island.

Speaking on behalf of the Hospice, I can't emphasize enough how important everyone's contributions are to provide and maintain the service. A huge thanks to all.

Very best wishes & sincere thanks to everyone
