Doncaster Council’s popular Borough Treasures scheme has introduced a new selection of offers and discounts to the borough's top attractions and leisure facilities, including a brand new event with Cast, Doncaster’s new performance venue.
Exclusively for the over 60s, Borough Treasures works with local businesses to provide members with a series of vouchers offering discounts and free days out to top attractions.
This year, Borough Treasures are working with Cast to offer 2 for 1 entry to a backstage tour of the theatre with an afternoon tea selection including speciality teas, fine sandwiches, finger cakes and scones. This offer is exclusive to Borough Treasures members, and will be offered throughout the year.
Mayor Ros Jones said: ‘The Borough Treasures scheme is a fantastic way for the residents of Doncaster over 60 to explore the town and visit attractions they may not have been to before.
‘I encourage anyone over 60 to sign up to the free scheme, and make the most of the fantastic offers available. It is simple to join, and really helps to improve the wellbeing of its members.
‘Cast is an exciting venue; it is a positive addition to Doncaster and the quality of its shows and performances is extremely high. The offer of a backstage tour with afternoon tea is unique to Borough Treasures, and is something I am sure our members will enjoy.’
Graham Whitehead, Director of Marketing and Communications at Cast said, ‘Cast are delighted to be supporting Doncaster Council's Borough Treasures scheme. As the newest venue in town we hope people will want to get a look behind the scenes of a fully working theatre followed by afternoon tea in our beautiful cafe bar.
‘We're really pleased to be working with partners and colleagues from across the borough, showing off what a great place Doncaster is and all it has to offer.’
The Borough Treasures scheme encourages residents to be more active, and includes free swimming and gym sessions, along with culture, arts, and sporting events.
Some of the local attractions involved in the 2014 scheme are Doncaster Rovers, Doncaster Knights, Doncaster Little Theatre and the Westfield Park Bowling Club.
Anyone over 60 can join the scheme by taking proof of age and a form identity such as a driving licence, bus pass or passport to a Doncaster Council Customer Service Centre. All members will receive a membership pass, a membership badge, and an annual booklet with exclusive vouchers.
Current members will receive details of this year’s discounts this week. For more information about Borough Treasures and the full list of offers available visit www.doncaster.gov.uk/boroughtreasures.
