Fantastic news! I'm thrilled to announce that only days after receiving the invoice from Longleat, we have already been pledged the full £250 needed from the Elizabethan Evening, Corsley.
Each year the owners of the grade I listed Elizabethan Manor Farm in Corsley put on a professional Shakespeare play in their fabulous grounds to raise money for local charities. Charities / projects which have benefited to date include the Playing Field in Corsley, Little Cuckoos Nursery, The Old School Field, St Margaret's Church and now the Black Canon Collective!.
Random Fact: Manor Farm was lived in by Sir John Thynne while Longleat House was being rebuilt after the fire of 1567. It is believed that some of the doors from the Farmhouse are now in Longleat House.
Marion Liquorice, Head of Advertising of the Elizabethan Evening (and Robins mum) contacted the club a few months ago to see how she could help. Marion has been incredibly helpful in securing this donation which will make a massive difference to the club so THANK YOU from all of us here at the BCC!
