These past few weeks have seen the August crew raise over an astonishing £600 on their Kickstarter page. However, to put on a play of this magnitude requires a lot more money.
You may have seen us in the Forum selling cakes, or outside of the Lemmy Saturday night availing your post-Lemmy munchies, however the crew have even more exciting fundraising projects up their sleeve. Here are two incredible challenges which deserve your attention:
1. The August Cast Tackle Dartmoor
Next Saturday (the 30th November) our cast, with their wonderful directors, will be trekking 35 miles across Dartmoor National Park starting at Okehampton and ending at Ivybridge. However, this is not a leisurely walk across the southern Devon countryside, IT’S A RACE!!
Our incredible cast have been split into two teams under the command of their directors.
So let’s meet the teams:
TEAM JAMIE TEAM LUCY
Jamie Manton Lucy Hirst
Bryony Skinn Luca Owenbridge
Philippe Edwards Darren Siah
Kitty Wright Hannah Aldridge
Lizzie Ryan Katherine Stevens
Ciaran Elmes Jordan Edgington
Hannah Lawrence Miranda Stewart
Which team will have your support?
Good luck to both teams and we will have an update next week after their adventures on the moors! Please donate and support this cause on our Kickstarter page:
The losing team will face a forfeit to be chosen by you and completed at the August Christmas Party on Monday 9th December- stay tuned for details!
2. Jordan Edgington aka Charles Aiken : Tulsa to Pawhuska
Our very own Jordan Edgington is completing a huge challenge all in aid of EUTCo’s production!
Jordan’s character, Uncle Charlie, travels 56 miles in the play to see his family. Therefore, Jordan will be swimming, rowing, cycling and running the accumulative distance of 56 miles over the course of 5 days. I think that deserves a round of applause!!
Here is his five day plan:
Day 1 – 4 mile swim
Day 2 – 4 mile swim
Day 3 – 14 mile row
Day 4 – 24 mile cycle (Exeter to Exmouth and back)
Day 5 – 10 mile run
This challenge, thought up by Jordan himself, shows the dedication and passion of the whole cast for this production. It would be amazing if you could give whatever you have to show your support and admiration for Jordan’s commitment.

It’ll be a tough week ahead for the August crew, but it will all be worthwhile with your generous donations!
