NEWS IN FOCUS EXTRA | Local Charities Benefit From Panto Fun

Four of the area’s local charities will benefit from the fundraising efforts of the Mansfield Hospitals Theatre Troupe, who are currently in the middle of a week long run of “Jack and the beanstalk” at Mansfield Palace Theatre.

Portland College, The Lee Bonsall Memorial Fund, Homestart Mansfield and the Mansfield Soup Kitchen will benefit from the proceeds of this year’s performance and become part of a group who have raised over £120,000 for various charities, since the troupe started running in 1980.

Last year’s production of Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood resulted in £4,000 being donated to Mansfield area causes, including Riding for the Disabled, Helping Hands and Dementia Care.

Trev Brownley from the troupe, who plays the Dame in this year’s show said “We’re a local troupe made up of local people young and old – we all give up a lot of time to do this and its really good fun. Our objective is to give the paying audience a cracking night out knowing that all the money that we raise will benefit local good causes”

Hear the full interview with Trev below, speaking to Mansfield 103.2s Craig Priest.

Tickets are priced £8 /£7 and are available from the Palace Theatre box office, call 01623 633133 or go to www.mansfield.gov.uk/palacetheatre
