Aladdin at The Maltings 22nd December to 15th January 2017

‘Aladdin’ will work its magic for Lisa’s Fund this December and January KD Productions are kindly helping Robert Barnes and his team to raise funds and awareness for Lisa’s Fund and Arthur Rank Hospice, during the run of their pantomime ‘Aladdin’!

Throughout the 24-day run, from 22 December to 15 January, Lisa’s Fund will have a table in the bar of The Maltings Ely providing a wonderful opportunity for pantomime-goers and families to find out more about the new Hospice and it’s progress, discover more about events and initiatives they might be able to help with and donate via a collection tin should they wish. The Charity continues to work hard to raise the remaining £2.2 million required for their £10.5 million new home which opened in November.

Robert Barnes, who founded Lisa’s Fund in memory of his wife and has now raised an incredible grand total of £148,500 for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, adds: “I’d like to say a huge thank you Kathrine, Dan and all the KD Productions team for their support – it’s opportunities like this which make it possible to keep on raising funds and awareness for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. Lisa and I experienced the Hospice’s care ourselves and it was so, so very important. With the wonderful support of the local community I’ve been able to carry on raising the Hospice’s profile and keep fundraising so that such essential care is available for more people like us, both now and into the future.”

Robert Barnes and Arthur Rank Hospice Charity would like to offer a huge thank you, to Kathrine, Dan & KD Productions for their wonderful support and best wishes for a successful magic-carpet-filled run of ‘Aladdin’!
