The end of lockdown as we know it has led to new steps in the fundraising direction by Bude’s group for Animal Free Research.
They include a virtual pantomime to raise money and awareness by the ever-creative residential care home Nos Nom.
Penny Baxter said: “’An Excuse for a Panto’ was an idea that team Nos Nom had in January. After a whole year of not going to the theatre we wanted to do something about it, so we decided to write, make props, act out and film our own pantomime for us and now others to enjoy”.
Last year Team Nos Nom raised over £1,600 for Animal Free Research UK by doing a crazy 26 challenges in May. With that in mind the team wanted to offer something a little different this year.
If you would like to see the Panto please give a donation to their Just Giving Page and then email firstname.lastname@example.org to be sent the link. The Panto will be available to view between 22-29 May to coincide with the awareness week.
“Since we formed in November 2015 we have raised over £33,000 for animal free research. We could not have done that without the amazing support of the community” added Steph Jones-Giles.
