Buildwas panto group’s boost for charity

Shrewsbury Ark, the charity for homeless people, has been presented with a cheque for £500 by the cast and crew of the Buildwas Players, following their sell-out pantomime Puss in Boots.

Every year the community theatre group performs a pantomime to raise money for local charities.   Producer Nigel Bowen said,  “It was fantastic to be back treading the boards after two years of Covid restrictions and we were delighted to raise so much money for the Shrewsbury Ark, which was voted this year’s charity by the cast and crew.” Chair of Shrewsbury Ark, Emily Bell, added, “We are so grateful for this donation, as we have just moved into new premises and have had a great deal of extra costs associated with the refurbishment. These funds will be appreciated more than ever by the Ark community.
