Cal­en­dar Girls di­rec­tor and star Anne Hunter and pro­duc­tion man­ager Aisne Ed­wards handed a cheque for more than $2000 to the Waikato Can­cer So­ci­ety Lions Lodge.

Fol­low­ing its highly suc­cess­ful pro­duc­tion, the Whanga­mata¯ Theatre So­ci­ety do­nated the money and thanked all con­trib­u­tors for their gen­er­ous dona­tions.

An auc­tion of the Kate Madill-jones-de­signed sun­flow­ers used as props in the show was among the suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised by the so­ci­ety over the last few months. Anne says as the Can­cer So­ci­ety’s ac­com­mo­da­tion fa­cil­ity for peo­ple who have to travel within the re­gion for Can­cer Treat­ment, the Lions Lodge in Hamil­ton was a most ap­pro­pri­ate nom­i­nated char­ity for prof­its from the Cal­en­dar Girls play, which cen­tres on the death of a hus­band from leukaemia.
