Bexhill Amateur Theatrical Society (BATS) have announced that their charity for this year is the Bexhill Caring Community (BCC).

Speaking on behalf of BATS, Peter Bradbury said the local am dram group will be working with “this excellent organisation” throughout the year to help them with fundraising.

He added: “Through their team of volunteers they offer a multitude of services for the housebound and lonely of all ages, including shopping, visiting, sitting, library, equipment loan, form filling, odd jobs, home help and gardening, general caring, the voluntary car service and Dial-A-Ride.

“They’ll be mounting raffles and displays at our three productions this year, and at the end of the year we’ll make a money contribution based on whatever profit we’ve made on those productions.”

BATS forthcoming production of The Taming Of The Shrew, to be held at the De La Warr Pavilion, April 3-5, will be flamboyantly styled in the 20s, and Peter said the style of the theatre lobby will be likewise,.

Peter said: “The BCC ladies have been keenly combing the internet for flapper dresses in readiness to fit in when they attend the show.”
