THE kind-hearted ladies from a theatre group in Belper were thrilled to be able to present a cheque for £760 to Treetops Hospice.

The woman of Belper Musical Theatre handed the cheque to George Cameron, who is chief executive of the Risley hospice.

Mr Cameron called into one of the group’s rehearsals for their upcoming show ‘Copacabana’ to pick up the cash.

The funds were raised at the group’s sell-out ‘In The Pink’ concert last month. Proceeds were split between the hospice and the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity. The hospice provides palliative care for adults with life-limiting illnesses such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and motor neurone disease.

‘Copacabana’ is on at Belper School between February 14 and 18. To get tickets call 01332 882909.
