Pantomime raises more than just laughs
7 January 2017
A charity performance of The Marlowe Theatre’s pantomime Dick Whittington, hosted by Barretts of Kent, has raised £5555 for us.
Managing director Paul Barrett and his wife Patsy joined cast members to present cheques to Porchlight, as well as Pilgrims Hospices and Kent Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.
Jo Dawes, our director of fundraising, accepted the cheque on behalf of Porchlight. She said: “A huge thank you to Barretts for once again choosing us to benefit from this excellent initiative.
“Winter is a dangerous time for people who are homeless and this generous donation will help us continue to offer life-changing support to some of the marginalised and excluded people in our society.”
