Story

JPTG is a friendly club that has been going for over 56 years, our members vary in age and some have been with the club since it started. It has brought a lot of happiness to our audiences over the years and what we have realised is that some of the people that used to come and see us are now in either care homes or house bound. Our project would let them see our shows within the comfort of the care home or sheltered complex and bring the theatre ambience back for them. It will give community empowerment and create a partnership. In the process we will reduce loneliness and isolation and for some give social inclusion.

The community within Renfrewshire are not always aware that there are opportunities to engage and take part in cultural activities. The club offers an opportunity to all to be able to expand, not only a members personal development, but also boost self-esteem by creating a performance that can be enjoyed by the participants and also emanate to the audience where they can engage and entertain providing a healthier, engaging activity within the community.

As you can understand, our financial outlook is not looking good. We need you! The figure we have here is for us to pay our standing still costs and enough for us to put on a production to get some much needed income when the current restrictions are relaxed in the future.

We ask of our community for a donation to help us keep this valued group alive. Not only for us to perform to you but also to help keep those talented members doing what they love locally and also bringing amateur dramatic opportunities to the surrounding area.

It can be as little or as much as you can afford. An idea of an amount might be what you would have paid for a ticket and a drink to come and see one of our productions? Please help us if you can and we will be there for you on the other side! Thank you.
