The Watford Foodbank has received a donation of £1,000 following a theatre production at the Kings Langley Community Centre.
Revue Variety Company’s production of All Aboard ran from November 18 to November 23 and the show treated members of the audience to a trip around the world.
With the proceeds from the show, the Revue Variety Company, based in Kings Langley, was able to make a donation of £1,000 to the Watford Foodbank. Representatives from the Foodbank came to see the show and were presented with the donation on Tuesday, November 19.
The show closed with a Winter Wonderland scene, which concluded with an energetic rendition of Jingle Bell Rock.
The theatre company has been supporting the Watford Foodbank since April this year, with food donations from cast and crew members. Two company members now regularly volunteer their time to work at the warehouse in Watford where they sort food donations and make up food parcels for distribution to those in our community who are most in need.
Karen Ashworth, from the Revue Variety Company, said: "We are delighted to be able to support this fantastic charity which helps those people in our local community who have fallen on hard times.
"I saw a south east news item on Foodbanks on TV back in April and wanted to make a family contribution to our local Foodbank. This happened to fall during our show week in April 2013 and lots of our members also brought food items to the show which we delivered to the Foodbank the following week.
"From this initial donation two of our long standing members now volunteer at the Foodbank and with their inside knowledge and understanding of how the Foodbank works, the charity was voted as our charity recipient for the November 2013 show."
