The dust has settled on our 2016 pantomime Dick Whittington and it was a terrific end to the year; 26 public performances, over 2000 audience members, a 200 ticket giveaway – we couldn’t be happier.
Or could we?
For the very first time we ran a collection at the show, raising money for two charitable organisations close to our heart: The Warren and Hull Help for Refugees. Both provide vital services to our home city and its patrons, so we wanted to help in whatever way we could. Show after show, our panto characters shook buckets at the door, teasing out the last few pennies our generous audience had to spare.
And we raised a fantastic £1,757.58!
It was a huge effort, and we can’t thank those who donated enough. You will be making a tremendous difference to the two charities involved, and it truly has blown us away. What a start to 2017!
Thanks again, and here’s to Hull, in 2017 – UK City of Culture!
