In mid-September the International Theatre Studio held a ‘Play in the Park’ event in Parque Leonera, Benahavís. The proceeds of the evening, which consisted of entertainment followed by a one act play called ‘What’s for Pudding’, were donated to Age Concern who also ran a raffle at the event. Over 200 people enjoyed a fabulous evening in glorious weather.
Picnics were eaten, entertainment enjoyed and several lucky people won on the raffle.
ITS have made a very generous donation of 1985€ to Age Concern, and the raffle raised a further 515€ making a total of 2500€ to help the work of the charity with older people in the community. Many thanks go to all of the people who bought tickets both for the event and the raffle, to the entertainers who gave of their time and energy, to the actors and actresses who delivered a professional, and very funny play, and to the ITS Committee who laid on the evening and who were so generous.
A cheque was presented to Eileen Dry, President of Age Concern, by Fred Wallis, Production Manager of ITS, and Kate Jackson, actress and ITS Committee member at the charity’s Drop-In-Centre in Estepona.
With this support Age Concern can continue expanding the work it carries out in helping older people who have problems and require help and information.
