First off sorry it's taken me a couple of days to write this blog, as I'm sure you can imagine, the last few days have been a bit of a blur. I've pasted what I put on Facebook on Saturday morning below,
Great night last night. As ever there's a lot people who aren't in the credits who have helped make it possible. So thanks go here to Joanne Oliver, Jowheretogo, North East Theatre Guide, Sarah Tennick, Bill Corcoran, Tyneside Irish Centre, Steve Hastie, Mark Jobson, Mayfield Studio, Liz Luff and Gary Williams. Thanks also to our generous Kickstarter backers, audience members and other supporters both online and offline. To paraphrase the inimitable Bill Belichick, "We're onto… the next one."
The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation is a cause very dear to my heart. If not for SBR I'd probably wouldn't even like football, he remains the only "celebrity" whose death made me cry. And so it meant a lot to us to be able to have a small raffle to try and raise some of money for his charity. The raffle was drawn at the end of the night and the winning tickets were:
Most people remembered to put contact details on the back of their tickets, so we will be in touch this week with your goodies. In total we raised a not too shabby £100, and will be sending the money to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation this week. Thank you.
More updates and photos from the night coming soon. The Stagg Do Store is now open - so please feel free to visit and buy DVDs, CDs and other merchandise as it becomes available.
Will try our best to keep this busy during the shoot and post-production.
