Huge congratulations to you all!!
JAMES HIGHTON, who was last seen as Franz in Rock of Ages has taken a short break from LAOS to pursue his dreams. James has started a nine-month contract as a singer at the five-star Ladram Bay Holiday Resort in Devon. We wish James the very best of luck. He will be missed.
It was with great sadness that we heard of the deaths of two ladies who have been such valued members of our society.
BARBARA BATTISON you probably never saw, but when the curtain rose on a scene that brought an appreciative “Aahh!” from the audience, it was probably because of the extra little touches that Barbara’s talent had brought to it. Stage dressings were her forte.
MARJORIE SARSFIELD came to Loughborough from Durham with her husband, Norman, and immediately made her mark on the local amateur theatre scene. She appeared in plays and musicals with several societies, including ours, as well as playing an active role behind the scenes. She served on our committee and for some time acted as Chairman. Her talent and commitment will be greatly missed.
Congratulations to our member Cazz Lander who swam the English Channel not once but twice this summer! Cazz swam as part of two relay teams to raise money for Aspire; a charity that does amazing work to support people affected by spinal cord injuries. LAOS are very proud of Cazz and pleased we have been able to donate as a society to Aspire to make real changes to peoples’ lives. You can find out more about the great work Aspire do by visiting their website: www.aspire.org.uk and you can sponsor Cazz at www.justgiving.com/cazzlander
