Tuesday 28th January 2020
A South Yorkshire theatre company has presented four collection buckets full of money from its performances of Aladdin for St John’s Hospice in Balby.
Two of the main characters from the Tin Pot Theatre’s Aladdin pantomime Suzy Dix and Jacob Sykes travelled to the hospice on Weston Road in Doncaster to hand over the buckets filled with £870.47 to Lindsey Richards Fundraiser at St John’s Hospice.
Suzy, who played the Princess in the pantomime, said: “We wanted to show our appreciation to the hospice for everything they did for my mum while she was in their care. The collection buckets were displayed at each of our eight performances at Montgomery Hall, Rotherham and we are all very grateful to those who donated thank you.”
The Balby-based hospice provides a comforting environment for people with life limiting illnesses and their families. It includes a day hospice where people can come and take part in therapeutic activities to improve their wellbeing. The staff support patients and families to live with their illness.
St John’s Hospice Fundraiser Lindsey Richards, said: “A big thank you to Suzy and Jacob and everyone from the Tin Pot Theatre for supporting us. Every penny goes towards the comfort of those who use our services.”
