THE ROJALES Pantomime Group recently made generous donations amounting to a grand total of €2000 to good causes in the area.
The money came from ticket sales for their annual January pantomime production, which this year, was Sleeping Beauty.
The funds were distributed between charities, social services departments in nearby towns and a local school.
Mike Smith, president of group was delighted to present donations on behalf of the group to the SAT animal rescue centre in Dolores.
The money will go towards the constructions of their new kennels and manager, Julia Kennedy was very pleased to accept the donation.
Sue Sellwood, from Paul Cunningham Nurses also accepted a donation, as did the Mayor of Rojales whose cheque for 700 euros will go to the town’s Social Services Department.
The Mayor of Los Montesinos Jose Manuel Burton also received a donation for Social Services in the town.
This year, the group were asked if they could buy a musical instrument for local music school, Escuela de Musica Los Montesinos.
Musical instruments are very expensive, meaning many parents cannot afford to buy their child their own instrument, so the members were very happy to hand across the gift of a brand new flute for the children to use.
Rojales Pantomime Group are always on the lookout for new members who enjoy joining in the fun of a pantomime and are actively looking for new members to participate in any capacity, in next year’s production (January 2018) with rehearsals starting in September this year.
