Pantomime audeinces at the Ipswich Regent were in generous spirits over Christmas, as they helped raise over £4,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Collection boxes across the 21 performances of Cinderella raised £4,250 for the charity which cares for youngsters with life-threatening conditions.

Patsy Johnson-Cisse, EACH Suffolk fundraiser, said: “We are thrilled with the amount raised at the pantomime and would like to thank the generous audience members who donated.

“A special thanks goes to Enchanted Entertainments who put on the show and allowed us to collect.

“The money raised will go towards supporting the children, young people and families that EACH works with.”
