Sooty unveils Saints Foundation as Cinderella’s chosen charity


Bucket collections at this Christmas' pantomime will raise money for us in our 20th year!

Customers coming to see Cinderella this Christmas at Mayflower Theatre will be invited to donate to the charity through collections at the end of each performance.

Cinderella stars Richard Caddell and Sooty unveiled Saints Foundation as the pantomime’s charity partner in a special video message.

Jazz Bhatti, Saints Foundation Fundraising & Partnerships Manager, said: “It’s a special year for Saints Foundation as we celebrate 20 years of life-changing delivery here in Southampton.

“We’re really grateful to Mayflower Theatre for helping us celebrate in style and fundraise with bucket collections at the end of each performance. We hope everyone enjoys the magic of Cinderella and gives generously this festive season!”

Michael Ockwell, Mayflower Theatre Chief Executive added, “I am delighted that Mayflower Theatre and the company of Cinderella are supporting Saints Foundation as our local charity partner this year. The work that the team do in our community is brilliant and essential. Whilst we are a cashless venue, we would appreciate audiences bringing some spare some money with them to donate through our bucket collections at the end of each performance.”

Cinderella will run at Mayflower Theatre from 10 December 2021 to 4 January 2022, with tickets still available via Mayflower’s website.
