Fundraising at our recent production of Blackadder Goes Forth has raised more than £450 for The Poppy Appeal.
Sales of remembrance poppies and other poppy products, plus
proceeds from a raffle and donations by audience members totted up to
£450.10. Chairperson Paul Meakin presented
a cheque to John and Grace Knightall, local representatives of the Royal
Remembrance has been a hugely important part of the
production and we decided early on to try and raise as much as possible for the
Poppy Appeal. We’ve been selling poppies and poppy products at rehearsals and
in the theatre as well as donating all the proceeds of our raffle. It was
amazing to see people coming out of the performance and adding their donations
to the collection, and we’d like to thank them for their support.
Mr and Mrs Knightall were also extremely helpful, supplying
the poppy petals used in the show, and we'd like to thank them for all their help.
