I recently got the email below which is self-explanatory. I have been in touch with Jen and promised her maps as I have lots of doubles or trebles of local maps. However, I have asked her how many she needs so we may want more.

At the moment, though, it looks as if it’s the other stuff we may need. Can anyone help?
She’s promised everything will be taken care of and returned. If you could let me know if you have anything we could collect it all together and get it to her in one go.

Hi there,

I was wondering if you could help me.

My name’s Jen and I’m a member of the stage management department at Sheffield Theatres.

We’re currently in rehearsals with a brand new play called What We Wished For, which is a spin on old fairytales. This will play in the Crucible theatre next month.

Two of our characters are Hansel and Gretel and in our story they are retired Scouts leaders who are usually seen with a patrol of kids.

I’m emailing because we’re trying to kit out the characters with orienteering equipment; compasses, maps of Sheffield and the Peaks, whistles, walkie talkies etc.

I was wondering if you had any old or surplus equipment that you would be happy to lend us for our production or if you’d be able to advise us where to source these things from?

We will be able to give credit in the show’s programme if you are able to lend us things.

Thanks so much in advance for your help.

Best wishes,

Jen Davey
