Our Trust bought together two classic children’s stories to present Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs, written by David Crump and Paul Simcox, at the Abbey Theatre in Nuneaton.
The pantomime, in its sixth year of production, raises funds for our Trust’s charitable fund, which is used to pay for projects which will benefit patients. There were three opportunities for NHS staff across the patch to catch the show, including a matinee show on Saturday 26 January.
The majority of the cast was made up of Trust employees, with special appearances from the Trust’s Board members.
Liz Cathcart, Head of Staff Engagement, said “Staff from across the organisation had spent many evenings and their own time, rehearsing for the shows. We are so proud of the amazing performances and all the effort put in by the cast and backstage team. The feedback to the shows has been brilliant. Knowing all the profits will be going back to charitable funds for our patients made it extra special.”
Just over £1,400 was raised for our Trust’s charitable funds; a fantastic achievement!
