Charity Night At Casa Ventura

Last week many of our Pantomime cast members attended a charity night at Casa Ventura and what a good night they had.

On the night we held a “name the bear” competition to raise funds for a much needed new sound equipment for the pantomime group. A huge thank you to all who bought tickets.

Mandy Bartlam from Stars In Bars needs a mention in dispatches for organising the event and our competition….. Thank you Mandy!

Drum Roll Please……………The lucky winner was Angie Wollaston.

Rojales Panto Cast With Father Christmas

We took time out from our Cinderella pantomime rehearsals to join Father Christmas on the Santa Express. Lucy and her magic elves at the Christmas Shop organized this event to raise money for the Elche Childrens home. Lucy & her elves work tirelessly each year to ensure that this is a success and this year was no exception. A huge thank you to them all.

It was a fantastic day, raising money for a fantastic cause and as you can see from the photos below that children and even the “big” kids had a great time. And who said it doesn’t snow in this part of Spain. You can find more pictures of the day here.

A huge thank you to David Murdoch, our photographer for the day….he was amazing. If anyone wants any of the images on the site then please use the contact form HERE and we will get them to you as soon as possible.
