MEMBERS of a Portsmouth-based drama society presented a cheque to the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research charity.

The Corpus Christi Amateur Dramatic Society (CCADS) Theatre Group raised a total of £1,210 to the charity by performing their version of the hit play Calendar Girls.

The group performed the famous stage show at the Kings Theatre earlier this month and proceeds raised on the night went to the charity.

As reported, they also furthered their fundraising efforts by producing a Calendar Girls-style calendar featuring tasteful nude pictures of the cast.

The cheque was presented to local Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research representative Joan Moore.

Cast member Wendy Fortune said: ‘Calendar Girls is one of those shows that will stay with us forever and raising money for charity was a plus.

‘The production brought home to all how many people have been affected by cancer and there were tears each night.

‘We were all very emotional and proud, and also exhilarated and exhausted as we put our heart and soul into each moment’.

The society will be performing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love at The New Theatre Royal, Guildhall Walk, this December.
