The cheque may look small, but it meant big money a charity dedicated to providing residential therapeutic breaks for cancer sufferers and their carers.
Ottery Community Theatre donated the £411 profits from its recent farce Honeymoon For One to Cancer Lifeline South West.
And the fun isn’t over, as rehearsals get under way for the group’s next production, family pantomime The Princess and the Pea, written and directed by Jill Machin.
There are all the expected personalities – bumbling dame, scheming villain and beautiful damsel in distress – plus a rather unusual fairy, a band of not-quite-your-average adventurers and the less-than-triumphant return of pompous Prince Rupert from 2015’s Hansel and Gretel.
So, can the baddie be defeated in time? And will Prince Rupert finally get his girl? Find out at The Institute, Ottery St Mary, from January 18-21 in the land of Happy Ever After.
