Fundraising is fun… oh yes it is!

Posted onPosted on 15th May

Theatregoers raised a record amount for a children’s hospice during the panto Jack And The Beanstalk in Mansfield.

A total of £5,346.01 was donated at the Palace Theatre for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, taking the total raised over the past six years for the North Anton hospice to more than £33,000.

Bucket collections will again be held this year when volunteers will be taking donations at Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.
The hospice’s community fundraiser, Melanie Rose, said: “It costs more than £4m to run the hospice each year, providing support both at the hospice and in the community.

“We are grateful to Mansfield Palace Theatre for allowing us to do bucket collections during panto season as it helps towards us making more memories for the 250 children we care for.”

Comedian Adam Moss, who is returning to the Leeming Street venue for the fourth time this Christmas, said: “I have got to know the volunteers from Bluebell Wood quite well since 2014 when I was first here for panto, so it’s great to see their familiar faces and the amazing work they continue to do for children in the local community and their families.

“Meeting people like them and the families the hospice care for is why I get out of bed every morning and do the job I do — if I can make just one person smile each day with my performances, then it’s been a good day.”

Tickets for Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs at the Palace Theatre are already selling fast.

The show runs from Saturday, 1st December to Sunday, 6th January.
