Charity fundraising show in Bungay in aid of disability charity
A night of music and entertainment is taking place at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay next Wednesday (21 May) in aid of Suffolk based disability charity Optua.
The Fundraising Showcase is being organised by local student Heather Willis who lives in Lowestoft. Heather has pulled together a programme of entertainment from her talented group of friends, including harp and piano performances, singing and comedy.
Tickets for the show will cost £5 with all profits going to Optua’s leisure service which provides activities and events for people with learning, physical and sensory disabilities in Suffolk.
The show starts at 7pm and tickets go on sale from this weekend. The theatre box office is open from 11am to 3pm on 01986 897130.
There will also be a prize raffle on the night with a top prize of a signed England shirt.
Heather Willis says: “I love performing and being involved in entertainment and music. I wanted to put on a show for a local charity and chose Optua because they help people with special needs.”
Sue Clements, Fundraising Manager at Optua, said: “We’re very grateful to Heather for organising this show in aid of Optua and hope it’ll be a great success! It’s also a chance for local people to find out more about what we do and we’ll be there providing information about what Optua and our leisure service does.”
