My story

[p]I've been involved with the Pavilion Theatre in Gorleston (Norfolk) since I was 11 years old, whether that's through performing on stage or more likely operating the tech or working in the office.[/p][p]I'm extremely proud to now be one of the Charity Trustees, taking care of the building and raising funds for future generations to continue to enjoy this incredible place. The building and the people are very dear to me and I know the same can be said for anyone who walks through its doors.[/p][p]As the Theatre receives no external funding, we've launched a 125 Restoration Fund to help us to completely restore and refurbish this original Edwardian building in time for its 125th anniversary in 2026. The biggest renovation project the Theatre has ever seen![/p][p]We've already fundraised and spent nearly £50,000 since the charity was formed on essential maintenance such as replacing the roof, but we want to go much further and raise over £1m to secure the future of the building. [/p][p]I'm running the marathon to help fund our next project as part of the 125 plan - replacing the loos 💪🏻[/p][p]This is a well overdue and essential piece of work to ensure our visitors can enjoy the space in a safe and comfortable environment. [/p][p]So please, if you have a spare penny or two to help me reach my target as I shuffle 26.2 miles around London, I'll be forever grateful to you for helping to keep this beautiful theatre alive and to help keep me going on the day 🙂[/p][p]Al x[/p][p][br][/p][p]p.s.
