Oh yes they did! Amateur dramatics group helps Eltham charity
3:40pm Monday 11th February 2013 in Community
The Priory Players has raised funds for the Freddie Farmer Foundation at its production of Dick Whittington and The Cat at the Progress Hall on Admiral Seymour Road, Eltham (23-26 Jan).
Terry Wheeler, who played the Night Watchman and helps do the publicity for the amateur dramatic company, said: “This year’s panto was a great success. It’s the second year we’ve supported Freddie Farmer’s charity, and we’re delighted to support the campaign to raise £250,000 to set up a specialised physiotherapy centre in south-east London for children and young people with cerebral palsy and serious mobility problems.
“The campaign for a specialist physio centre for children like Freddie seems such a good cause.
“Funds were raised through a raffle, and the winning tickets were drawn by the Mayor of Greenwich, Councillor David Grant."
