Forty Pound Theatre handing over a cheque to Chapter 1 Kingsley House
04 APR 2011
On Thursday 3 February Forty Pound Theatre handed over a cheque for £1737.66 to Chapter 1 Kingsley House to support their work with homeless young people. The money came from the pantomime, the Belle’s Stratagem, which was performed at the Bent Brief pub in Southampton at Christmas.
Olly Simpson, scheme manager for Chapter 1’s young people’s service in Southampton said: ‘Donations like this make an immense difference to us. They allow us to offer more opportunities and activities for our young residents, and seeing groups like Forty Pound supporting us, helps them feel part of the wider community. We’re very grateful.’
The Chapter 1 team worked with the theatre company to earn their donation, and one of the performers was Kingsley House project worker, Kayleigh Stensland.
Forty Pound Theatre Company is made up of students and ex-students form the University of Southampton, usually from the English Department, together with customers for their local hostelry, the Bent Brief. The Belle Stratagem is their eighth production and builds on the success of previous charity pantomimes at the Bent Brief.
