MAD about help­ing out in Uganda

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
