CHARITIES

As well as producing shows, we strive to raise as much money for a selection of charities. Our goal is that every show will be in aid for a chosen charity decided by our Fundraiser Coordinator. When deciding a charity, we take into consideration a factor of things such as, location and whether any of our members have been affected by this cause. We like to keep it close to home, so we can make our members and community feel proud. We do so by donating 100% of the money we raise from our thriving raffles and some fundraising events. Below is a list of all the charities we have raised money for. If you are a charity and would like to be considered as our next chosen charity, please email: abigailsperformingarts@hotmail.co.uk with all relevant information and contacts. Thank you.

ALICE... THE PANTO! WAS IN AID FOR THE SMILE OF ARRAN TRUST

"Arran was unfortunately diagnosed with a brain tumour. With his family by his side, he calmly and bravely went into battle on Tuesday morning with that huge smile, and a determined ‘thumbs-up-let’s-kick-this-tumour’s-a**!’

Sadly, the tumour was far far worse than predicted, and complications led to Arran falling into a deep coma. He spent four days being cared for by a team of experts in Addenbrooke’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, surrounded constantly by pure love, prayer, music, kisses and cuddles. His mum, dad, sisters and family handed him over to Jesus early on Saturday 7th June. Arran was only 13. Arran’s zest for life and inspirational character has influenced, and even transformed, the hearts and minds of the countless people he knew and loved, (as well as the many he didn’t know, but have been moved and compelled by his powerful story) and we take peace and comfort in that during these difficult days.

His focus was to achieve £1000 of donations by the start of July. Since his own battle started, his donations have surpassed £120,000. Our gorgeous wee man would be proud beyond belief. We would be grateful if you could assist us to share Arran’s story and most importantly, his legacy." We proudly raised a whopping £706.72 for the Smile of Arran!
