Pantomime Donations

This year’s Hethersett pantomime, “Jack and the Beanstalk,” raised over £4,400 for local charities. A bucket collection at the end of each performance raised £2,035 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. In addition £300 has been sent to Hethersett Parish Church, Little Melton Church, Hethersett Methodist Church and Wymondham Roman Catholic Church. Cheques for £300 have also been presented to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital towards its heart surgery facility appeal and the Hethersett Doctors’ surgery towards a new defibrillator. Local youngster Juliana Ball was also given a donation towards her proposed trip to work in Africa. Writer and Producer Duncan Pigg said he was delighted with the outcome: “I am very pleased with the result. It was the best response we have had,” he said.
