Chameleon Theatre Company Fundraising Success

Chameleon Theatre Company in Chandlers Ford are proud to be an integral part of the local community and every September they choose a local charity to fundraise for over the next year. For their 2017-18 fundraising choice the Chameleons voted for hArt – Hampshire Art for Recreation and Therapy, a charity based in Lymington which looks for creative ways to support mental health using art therapy.

Starting with their October production of Murdered To Death, the Chameleons began fundraising through their well-supported raffle, whereby audience members attending the show are offered tickets in return for a donation to the charity. The raffle has become a staple feature of any Chameleons production and the audience loves to take part, hoping to win the box of chocolates, or the bottle of wine, or perhaps the occasional “joke” prize of a signed picture of one of the characters! During the January pantomime, cast members even move amongst the audience in full costume to sell the tickets.

Thanks to the generosity of the Chameleons’ audiences, the fundraising efforts this year raised an incredible £1646.79 for hArt. A cheque for this amount was presented by Chameleons’ Treasurer Roger Hester, to Sian Hayden, representing the charity.

For the 2018-19 fundraising season Chameleons have chosen One Community, and hope to achieve a similar fantastic total, which can only be done with the support of the lovely audiences who attend each show.
