If you haven’t yet bought a wooden parquet tile in support of the Franschhoek Theatre Project at Franschhoek High School your time could be running out. The project team says that sales are brisk and an ever-decreasing number remain to be sold.
As part of the final fundraising push a limited number of teak parquet tiles are being sold. The tiles, original to the historic building, are superfluous to the theatre’s flooring needs as some previously parqueted areas are being carpeted. Some of these superfluous parquet tiles are being ‘sold’ at R500 each to finance the final touches to the theatre.
Everyone who ‘buys’ a parquet tile will have their name, or that of someone they nominate, inscribed on the tile which will then be installed on a feature wall in the theatre as an everlasting sign of gratitude. (Please note that inscriptions are limited to 32 characters, including spaces.
Payment details are as follows:
Full Swing Trading 598 t/a Rose Cottages
Standard Bank, Franschhoek 051001
Account No 200880012
As reference, please use F Theatre, your initial and surname.
To ease administration, the funds will be collected and ring-fenced in this account before being paid into the school account.
Send your name, the number of tiles you wish to ‘buy’ and the name(s) you wish to have inscribed on the tile(s) to Ronelle who is administering the project. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
