The above photograph was taken at the Broadstone Christmas parade which Broadstone Pantomime Productions entered, We were joined by Neil Mitchener who provided one of his veteran vehicles for us to use, It was a 1935 Vauxhall. In the photograph are several members of our cast for Dick Whittington, being our production for this past year. During the parade we handed out approximately 600 leaflets for our show, met a lot of people and had a great time. We are hoping to be in the parade this coming December, so keep an eye out for us. See you there, be there or be square.
Some kind words from this years charity…
Thanks so much for such a wonderful evening. My whole family loved the panto, so much fun and we were laughing throughout. Thanks very much for inviting us and choosing Ellen MacArthur trust as your charity. Your incredible donation will allow so many more youngsters affected with cancer to go sailing and have the chance to make friends! Once again brilliant panto, extra well done to Squire and Doctor, had me in stitches.
Broadstone panto raises funds for Poole Scanner Appeal
Broadstone Productions’ recent staging of Cinderella raised £1,000 for the Poole Scanner Appeal. “This was a terrific effort for which were are extremely grateful,” said Stuart Dean, chairman of Poole Hospital Cancer Treatment Trust/ Poole Scanner Appeal. “The group put on a great show and they obviously enjoyed performing as much as the audience enjoyed the show.”
cheque was presented to Mr Dean at the final performance of the panto and subsequently he has learned that NHS England has agreed that they can join in partnership with the hospital and Alliance Medical to provide facilities for a new PET/CT Scanner. This will be installed at the hospital towards the end of 2015/early 2016 and will replace the mobile machine shared with Bournemouth Hospital which comes to the rear car park at the hospital every other week.
Mr Dean added: “The proceeds from the panto will go towards this venture and we are now in discussions with Poole Hospital to see how we can further help them in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer patients in the Borough and surrounding parts of Dorset. “Our work cannot be undertaken without the invaluable support of the voluntary help of my fellow trustees on the Scanner Appeal and of course without the generous support of those who continue to donate to the Appeal.”
