MAD about helping out in Uganda
PEOPLE of all ages flocked to an outdoor Shakespeare performance which raised £3,250 for charity.
An audience of 145 watched as charity Making a Difference (MAD) hosted professional touring company Festival Players in MAD board member Ruth Webber’s garden in Gerrards Cross.
Member David Beattie said: “The Festival Players rose to the occasion, consistently doubling and tripling up on parts played as they brought Shakespeare to life in the garden. It was hugely enjoyable.”
MAD is a South Bucks charity which supports more than 100 children’s projects by sending volunteers and cash to make a difference in Kampala, with financial independence the long term goal.
Ruth said: “All money raised at MAD events goes directly into supporting the network of children at risk projects in Kampala, Uganda.”
Matthew Duncan, from Chalfont St Peter, is currently volunteering in Kampala and teacher Nikki Hayns, also from Chalfont St Peter, will go in August.
