Oh no they haven’t….Oh yes they have!
Yes, indeed, the guys and girls of Hethersett Pantomime Group really HAVE given £2,500 to EACH’s Nook Appeal.
The generous cheque was presented to Judith Sykes, of the Nook Friends Group, who was in the audience for the last of a run of Robinson Crusoe performances
She said: “Hethersett Pantomime Group members are all amateurs, but the performance was very professional and very enjoyable – oh yes it was!”
Performances are always followed by bucket collections and the total raised for good causes since 1970 is a staggering £107,350.
This year’s proceeds will help East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) as it builds a new children’s hospice for Norfolk.
Foundations for a purpose-built facility were dug out at a five-acre site in Framingham Earl in November after the nook appeal hit £7 million.
Another recent donation to the appeal was from Brooke Ladies Evening Group. The women have spent the last year fundraising and subsequently handed the nook friends group a cheque for £2,300.
