KD Theatre Productions, the company behind the sell-out pantomime ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwafs’ at The Maltings, Ely, collected money for the various charities over the course of the pantomime’s Christmas run at the end of last year.

KD donated the funds to the ‘Mayor’s Charity,’ Heart FM’s charity ‘Global Make Some Noise,’ as well as some of the local primary schools who came to the pantomime to help cover their transport costs.

Producer Daniel Bell said: “It’s great to be associated with so many great causes. The pantomime is so well attended and so it’s great to raise the profile of the fantastic work these charities and organisations are doing.”

As well as supporting the different charities, ‘Lisa’s Fund’ also held a fundraising stand over the course of the pantomime.
