A year-long charity partnership has raised more than £2,500 for a good cause.
New Theatre Oxford, who sponsored Soundabout as its charity of the year 2017, marked the occasion by handing over an autographed ‘treasure trove’ of some of the biggest acts around including U2’s Bono.
During the 12-month period, the venue raised the funds from numerous bucket collections, a bake sale, as well as a member of staff running the Liverpool rock n roll half marathon.
Alongside the fundraising, the theatre asked several stars from the world of music to sign a resonance board that will be auctioned at a later date to raise more funds.
Names on the board include Kevin Kennedy, Roy Wood, Caro Emerald, Billy Ocean, Rick Astley and Daniel O’Donnell among others.
New Theatre Oxford general manager, Lee Duffy, said: “It is important for us as a venue to be involved and show our support for local groups, which was one of the reasons why we decided to form year-long partnerships with a nominated local charity.
“We are always overwhelmed by the generosity of our visitors, and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to each and every person who made a contribution.”
Oxford-based Soundabout aims to give disabled children and adults a voice through music, rhythm and sound.
