Welton Pantomime are a local group which have been raising funds each year for local charities and good causes since their first performance of Snow White in 1984, which raised £170 for NSPCC. Since their beginnings, the group have managed to raise over £35,000 for local charities, groups and good causes.
2021’s Pantomime was a sellout performance of Snow White. For this performance the group decided to raise funds for King’s College Hospital Children’s Critical Care Centre in memory of Elena Betts, a local child who sadly passed away in December 2019 after her second multi-organ transplant. As a thank you to the centre they spent months at, the family decided to begin fundraising, and Welton Pantomime Group decided they would help.
Welton Pantomime Group managed to donate an incredible £1,500 from their pantomime proceeds, this paired with Elena’s Ball that the group helped organise, in total they have managed to donate an astonishing £6,079 to Elena’s family. Adding this contribution to the total, Elena’s Story has raised over £27,000 for the Children’s Critical Care Centre to make a real difference to families like theirs.
Since the groups beginnings they have managed to donate funds to the likes of St Barnabas Hospice, Air Ambulance, Lives, Umbrellas and countless more. As a group which has community spirit at the heart, they always ensure the charity or good cause they will be donating to is one which can have a real impact locally so that their fundraising efforts can help those right here in the community.
2022’s performance is due to be Cinderella, so if you would like to get involved then get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
