Show Time – over £2,000 raised at Hove panto

Wednesday 7 February 2018

Between 20–27 December, Showtime Productions entertained families with their production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Windmill Theatre in Hove. A combination of collections at the pantomime, tea and coffee sales, and donations raised a total of £2,088.60 for Chestnut Tree House.

Robert and Corinne Blass of Showtime Productions said: “We are delighted that the pantomime was such a huge success, raising over £2,000 for Chestnut Tree House. The charity does such vital work in helping local children and families, and we are happy to be able to help.

“We wouldn’t be able to put on the pantomime without help, and would like to thank Drama Queens Brighton and all of the volunteers for all their hard work in making the show a success. Thanks also to all the show sponsors, Bryants Decorators, Brighton and Hove Streamline Taxis, Geneva Group, Austin Gray, Cronin’s Cleaning Services, Lollipop Print and The West Hove Directory.”

Robert and Corinne Blass also recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary, and instead of receiving gifts, they asked for donations to Chestnut Tree House. This generous initiative raised an impressive £1,000.

Jo Moss, Community Fundraiser at Chestnut Tree House said: “We are so grateful to Robert and Corinne and Showtime Productions for their ongoing support. The £2,088 raised at the pantomime and the £1,000 from donations via the Give in Celebration scheme will make such a difference.

“We need to raise £6,850 every day to cover the cost of all our specialist care services, both at the hospice and in families’ own homes. With only 7% of this coming from central government funding, we rely heavily on the local community and people like Robert and Corinne so that we can continue caring for children with life-shortening conditions. Thank you from everyone at Chestnut Tree House.”
