Every year around this time, we launch our Christmas Appeal to raise money and awareness for deserving causes in and around Herefordshire. Your generous bucket donations from all of the Pantomime and Little Red Riding Hood shows go to charities and 2017/18 is no different as we’re asking for your support for the I <3 CY campaign.

It’s the first time we’ve collected solely for ourselves but with a massive target of £40,000 to raise by the end of March your donations are most definitely needed to help us maintain our brilliant standard of community work with young people, older people and those living with dementia.

As part of this year’s Christmas Appeal we are working with our business supporters to be able to offer you an amazing array of Christmas gifts at rock bottom prices through our Christmas Auction but time is running out to bag a festive bargain, with the beautiful “Portrait of a Stag” by Hannah Dale still under £100 (RRP £200) and a luxury stay in Castle House Hotel at just £170 (RRP £250). There are gifts for every budget; with jewellery, gift vouchers and even a MINI for a weekend among the tantalising lots available to collect from us before Christmas.

The auction ends at midday on Friday 15 December with lots available for collection straight after you pay online- joining the auction really couldn’t be simpler, all you need to do is follow this link, sign up with your email address and you can get stuck straight in!

Good luck!
