Generous audiences at an Aberdeen pantomime have helped raise a record sum for charity.
Bucket collections were organised at this winter’s Aladdin pantomime, held at His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen.
In total £15,369.08 was raised for The ARCHIE Foundation – almost £7,000 more than the previous year.
APA chief executive Jane Spiers said: “We were absolutely blown away by the generosity of theatre-goers over the Christmas period and we’re delighted to have broken our past fundraising records for The ARCHIE Foundation, a charity which makes a huge difference to the lives of children and their families when they are sick.”
David Downie, interim chief executive at the charity, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have received this donation from Aberdeen Performing Arts.
“The generosity of those attending the pantomime over the festive period was incredible to see, and the money raised will play an important role in helping us ‘Make the Difference’ for local sick children.”
