If you’re planning to boo or cheer the stars of Mansfield Palace Theatre’s pantomime this year, don’t forget your spare change.
Fundraisers will be collecting after performances of Jack & the Beanstalk, hoping to raise even more than last year’s amazing total of £4,982 for Bluebell Wood. All donations will help the children’s hospice to support children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions.
This is the seventh year that Mansfield fundraisers are collecting for Bluebell Wood at panto performances, with an incredible £33,157 raised in the last six years. Described as ‘a magical giant of a pantomime in amazing 3D’, Jack & The Beanstalk stars Mark Little, Adam Moss and Rebecca Wheatley and will run from 2 December until 7 January.
Andrew Tucker, Cultural Services Manager, Mansfield Palace Theatre, said: “We’re very proud of this partnership and hope panto goers will dig deep to help families across this area facing the toughest of times. Mansfield Palace Theatre is somewhere families come to relax, laugh and have fun together, and we know Bluebell Wood does the same for the families it cares for. We’re delighted to support this valuable cause again this year.”
Melanie Rose, Community Fundraiser, Bluebell Wood said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Mansfield Palace Theatre and our fantastic Mansfield group for all their support over the last six years. Panto goers have been brilliant donating their spare change to help our families make special memories together, whether they’re making music, arts and crafts, enjoying a movie in our cinema room or receiving end of life treatment and care.”
