Three charities have received donations from Honiton Community Theatre Company (HCTC), following collections at the group’s recent shows.
The Baton, the Royal British Legion and the Joe Gilson Mobility Scheme all received a share of the £390 that was collected at the productions of Private Peaceful, in November, and Aladdin, in February.
A spokesman said all the charities have been great supporters of the productions, with one of the Joe Gilson mobility scooters actually featuring on stage in Aladdin and The Baton featured in the final scene of Private Peaceful; an emotional memorial to those who were put to death by court martial during the war.
The spokesman said: “This was topped off by a stunning reading by Mick Robson, who represented the Royal British Legion, leaving many of the audience in tears.”
HCTC’s chairman, Shaun Bonetta, said: “We’re so lucky to live in a community where everyone supports each other. There’s some excellent local charities around, and the more we can do for them, the better.”
HCTC will stage A Night at the Musicals at The Beehive on Friday, May 19 and Saturday, May 20.
