Acoustic Night - March 2009

Planning for our next event is well under way. It is an acoustic night featuring many of our top local talented artists. We have booked the Devonport Playhouse for the evening of March 28th, and are looking to fill the place to the rafters.

In return for £5 of your hard-earned cash, we will be providing three hours of entertainment including acoustic sets from:
  • Josie Newton,
  • Sam Ho,
  • Katie Marie and
  • Steve Osman.

We are working on a few more people and hope to finalise details in the next week or two.

In the meantime, we are offering early-bird tickets available for £5. All we ask is that you book and pay before Christmas.

E-mail admin@pl-ease.org.uk for more details.

Keep watching!

Santa's Xmas Pud Run

We are PL-ease'd to announce that we have been chosen as the 2009 charity for the Plymouth Coasters. The Plymouth coasters arrange and take part in a number of fundraising runs throughout the year. This includes Santa's Xmas Pud run around Saltram in December.

To thank the Coasters for choosing us for 2009 and to meet some of their members, we are taking part in this year's run. We are hoping to raise money for their chosen charity of 2008 - the Daisy Garland charity.

The Daisy Garland charity is a family run charity, set up by parents to turn a hugely devastating tragedy into something positive to help other children. See http://www.thedaisygarland.org.uk/.
The charity works to provide active support for children with epilepsy. It aims to improve the quality of life for children with difficult to control epilepsy accompanied by developmental delay. If you would like to sponsor us and show support for this worthwhile charity, please see our justgiving page by clicking on the widget on the left of this blog.

Very many thanks to the Coasters! Here's hoping we can raise a decent sum for the Daisy Garland charity.

...going once, going twice...

GONE! The Brian Pollard artwork has been sold for....£236....

Very many thanks to Brian for donating this wonderful piece, and thanks to those who bid.

With money raised from the charity night, this makes a total of £396.

Now we can start putting more detail on the next events. An acoustic concert in March, and the Jailbreak in April.

In between times, we have a bucket collection at Waitrose (Saltash) in Feb, and are looking to have a Christmas collection in the City Centre (to be arranged).

Keep watching!

Many thanks

...3 days to go...

With only three days to go, the Brian Pollard picture is standing at £102.

It is great to break the £100 barrier - but hopefully we will see this figure go even higher by the end of the auction.

It is being offered for local pick-up only. We didn't want to risk losing it or getting it damaged in transit, and also it means that someone local to Plymouth gets to benefit from the picture whilst also supporting a local charity.

Win-win situation for the "PL" area.

The item can be seen or bid for by searching for "original Brian Pollard" at www.ebay.co.uk

Do I hear £150 anywhere???

We also have some great news for 2009, but will keep this until the auction ends....
