The Courtyard Christmas Appeal 2016
Every Panto season, The Courtyard Christmas Appeal raises vital funds for The Courtyard Trust and another local charity. We invite a charity to partner with us on the Appeal, which runs throughout our hugely popular pantomime season. All funds raised are divided equally between The Courtyard (supporting our own vital community arts programmes) and the work of the partner charity.
For this year’s exciting production Aladdin, we are delighted to be partnering Herefordshire Community Foundation which does so much to support projects with community organisations and groups in the County as well as individuals in need. HCF – via the trusts and funds it administrates – has supported many projects at The Courtyard including our Creative Ageing programme supporting older people in care settings, including those with dementia, as well as our youth education work.
This year’s Christmas Appeal launches on Saturday, 26 November and runs until Saturday 7 January 2017 and Panto cast members will be out in the foyer bucket collecting after public performances. Donations can also be made via Box Office on the phone or at the counter and also on this website.
This year’s Online Auction raised over £800 towards the overall Christmas Appeal so many thanks to all donors including some of The Courtyard’s Business Club members and HCF trustees, as well as everyone who bid on and won prizes.
