Generous audience members were happy to donate after seeing ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ at the Bournemouth Pavilion and ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ at the Barrington Centre, Ferndown. Further funds were raised at a New Year’s Eve show starring Kev Stevens, better know to Variety as Krazy Kev. The grand total of the collections was £4,057.67.

Frances Cornelius, chair of Variety Wessex said:

A huge thank you to everyone who donated so generously. Your contribution to Variety, the Children’s Charity will help us support underprivileged children in the local area. Thank you Rob Noverraz and BH Live, Kev Stevens and the terrific casts of both pantomimes, particularly those who helped with the collections after each performance. Thank you too to Variety Wessex committee members Judy Hiscoke and Jenny Davies who were such a support with this vital fundraising.
