Buying a theatre seat for our mum and dad!

Buying a Theatre Seat in Mum and Dad's memory

by Alexandra Walsh in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England

We did it
On 6th December 2016 we successfully raised £351 with 26 supporters in 14 days

New stretch target

We can then buy 2 chairs :) one each!!

Charlotte and I lost both our parents to the dreaded C 6 weeks apart back in May and June. It has been an awful few months, but now as we continue through the grief we want to do nice things to remember them and celebrate their lives not mourn their deaths. 

Mum danced at the New Theatre Royal as a teenager in the film The Boyfriend (she even played Twiggy's feet).

Mum and dad both loved the theatre and passed on this passion to my and my sister. 

In honour of their memory we thought it would be nice to dedicate a seat to them this is a plaque with their names on. 

These seats cost £216, however on 29th November-3rd December any contribution to the theatre will be doubled so the theatre will receive extra money.  i ahve to have received all money by 3rd Dec 12pm

 Charlotte and I will contribute money of course, but thought if we can also raise money for the theatre they loved so much woudl be fantastic.
