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."
