An outlet in Brentwood that is doing good

For a long while now I have been looking for an outlet in my home town of Brentwood that will stock my products. I have approached various retailers, but sadly with rising overheads and VAT they are simply not in a position to be able to work with me.

So not one to give up I looked for another option and am now delighted to say that I have found it.

Brentwood Theatre is a fantastic venue, right in the heart of the town which is becoming a really up and coming venue for some fantastic shows. Not only is it open to the public for viewings of all kinds it is a fully paid up member of the local community and it's Manager mark can be seen out and about networking with all sorts to make sure that the Brentwood Theatre flag gets flown as high as possible, wherever possible.

Every year the theatre puts on a childrens show, last year it was the Plotters of Cabbage Patch Corner and this year in December they will be performing Jemima Puddleduck. Many local schools book to bring their children to see the performances, but there are many local schools who simply do not have the funds to do so. The theatre works tirelessly throught the year to raise it's own funds, (in fact it needs approximatly £10,000 a year in funding just to keep it's doors open), but as well as raising these funds it does it's best to raise a little bit extra to pay for the children who otherwise would not get to see their shows to have a ticket.

So here is where I come in:

Beautiful Things by Claire Mackaness products are soon to be available to purchase within Brentwood Theatre and a percentage of every item that is sold will be given to the Jemima Puddleduck ticket fund to buy tickets for the children who otherwise would be unable to attend.

So now when you are in town looking for a beautiful and unique gift you know where to go. Pop along to the main foyer and pick up something that is not only beautiful in itself but does a beautiful thing for someone who needs it. Not only that but if you visit on a Saturday, 'Jeans Coffee Beanery' is open from 10am - 2pm and you can have a lovely cuppa while your there.

I hope to be in place and fully stocked by the middle of June, but this is where the people of Brentwood can help us. Mark and I are asking if any of you have a kitchen dresser unit either going spare that we can have or to borrow on long term loan that you contact us ASAP. Once we have a suitable cabinet I can start filling it with lovely items to start raising those vital funds.

If you can help, please call me on 01277 230769 or e-mail me
Many thanks
