THE DUNMOW Players raised more than £300 for charity in collections at their performances of Oliver!
The total included £69 raised by cast member Vic Ranger – Mr Brownlow in the production – who had a sponsored shave after the show’s last performance.
The money will be donated to the Alan Morement Memorial Fund, based in Little Bardfield, the UK’s only charity that deals with cholangiocarcinoma.
A spokesman from the charity said: “The fantastic performances from the Dunmow Players sent everyone off in such a good mood.
“They happily showed their generosity at the collection buckets as they left the hall and the icing on the cake was Vic’s decision to do a sponsored beard shave after the last performance.
