A WOKINGHAM pantomime has raised money for two charities with their classic performance of Cinderella.

The Corpus Christi Parish Pantomime group performed at Caudwell Hall Theatre at the Holme Grange School and the funds raised have been split between two charities, which are Sal’s Shoes and Berkshire Respite Holidays.

Sal’s Shoes takes used and barely worn shoes and gives them to the 300 million children for whom walking in footwear is a rarity.

A spokesperson from Sal’s Shoes, said: “As a relatively small charity in terms of funding our only real limitation is financial and every £1 donated is a pair of shoes on the feet of a child who may otherwise not own a pair.”

Berkshire Respite Holidays works with The Jumbulance Trust, a national charity which makes travelling possible for sick, disabled and disadvantaged individuals. They offer groups and individuals the opportunity to leave their care home to take holidays and short breaks.

The pantomime group, which is made up of people from the age of 11 to 60 managed to raise £1,500 for the two charities.

Martin Robins, director of The Corpus Christi Parish Pantomime, added: “I am so proud of the cast for the quality of the show they produced, and the funds raised for these very worthwhile charities.”

The amateur group get involved with all aspects of the show including performing, writing, lighting and costume making.
