Since it was reopened in 2013, The Witham has established a reputation for quality arts programming, combining contemporary dance, touring theatre and a varied programme of live music with comedy, film nights and live screenings. We host regular independent community groups, support artist development, and lease studios to local businesses. We have a gallery space exhibiting professional and amateur artists, and a vibrant in-house café. We successfully run participatory activities, for example, linking local primary school children with local residential care homes or running 'A Summer of Stories' targeting families.
The purpose of the Investing in the Witham appeal is to create a secure financial basis for the future that will allow us to draw in new people whilst retaining the patronage of our current audience. The overall target of the appeal is to achieve £150,000 before the end of this year, with an initial target of raising £30,000 in 30 days from our community. If 100 people could spare £10 a month - with Gift Aid it would be worth £15,000 a year.
With your help we will do it!
With your support The Witham will continue to:
- enrich people's lives in our rural community by providing entertainment of a quality that is normally only available in large urban centres
- expand what is offered whilst continuing with programming that people already value
- bring people together for friendship and community involvement
- listen and respond to local people and visitors about what they want from The Witham.
If you are a UK taxpayer, you can boost this and any future donations by 25p for every £1 you donate, at no cost to you. If you pay tax at the higher or additional rate, tax relief may be due to you personally, however to claim it, you will need to include all your Gift Aid donations in your self assessment tax return or ask HMRC to adjust your tax code. The Witham has selected BT MyDonate as the platform for donations because it does not charge fees for the service, so you can be confident that your donation will benefit The Witham.
Please keep coming to The Witham. The autumn season is programmed and there are some great things on offer - but we need you to come and be part of it.
Thank you in advance for your donation.
