Wisbech Players take centre stage to raise money for QEH Breast Care Unit

Cambridgeshire acting company raises funds for the Breast Care Unit at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn.

The Wisbech players raised £285 following their latest production of Cheshire Cats.

Held at the Angles Theatre in Wisbech, the play tells the story of a group of diverse women and men taking part in the Moonwalk to raise money for breast cancer.

Written by Gail Young, the story follows the individuals on their journey from training to completion of the walk.

The £285 was raised from a raffle which took place every night before the performance and run by committee member, Eileen Betts.

Eileen handed over the cheque to Angela Holford, Senior Breast Care Nurse.

She said: “The play was wonderful and we raised funds for a very important cause.”

After accepting the cheque, Angela said: “I’d like to thank Eileen and all of the Wisbech Players for all of their hard work in what sounded like a very successful production!

“These donations allow us to buy the smaller things that make such a different to our patients. For example, we are looking to buy a range of different bras for patients to visualise the type of product they need.”
