Chas Hodges of the famous Chas and Dave is coming to Bromley on Saturday 26 April to perform all the old classics to raise funds for the Freddie Farmer Foundation.
Thank you and well done to St Paul's Academy in Abbey Wood for raising £10,100 for good causes from their annual Advent Charity Appeal.
A magnificent £1000 was donated to the Freddie Farmer Foundation.
A spokesperson from the Academy, said:
“These events have generated a great amount of money and, as always, we are very grateful for the enthusiasm and support of students and staff, who give their time and energy in making our fundraising activities such a huge success, enabling us to support a wide range of charities, at local, national and international level.”
Freddie's Mum, Deanne, said: “We can’t thank St Paul's Academy enough for their very generous donation.”
Oh yes they did! The Priory Players have raised over £350 for the Freddie Farmer Foundation. The amateur dramatics group transformed into their favourite panto heroes and villains last month (22-25 Jan) in the classic ‘rags to riches’ fairy story, Cinderella.
A spokesperson from the group said:
We are pleased to hear that the Foundation has now acquired a building in which to establish the new therapy centre and work is proceeding in refurbishing it. It is planned that the centre is opened in the Spring so that is very good news. However, the Foundation will need to continue to raise money to run and maintain the centre so no doubt we will continue to support Freddie's cause in the future.
This is the third year the Priory Players have raised funds for the Foundation.
THE Priory Players will be raising money for the Freddie Farmer Foundation during their production of Cinderella in Eltham, south-east London from Wednesday, January 22.
The amateur theatre company will be raising money for the foundation for the third year running at their annual panto at the Progress Hall on Admiral Seymour Road, Eltham (Jan 22-25).
Cinderella is a classic ‘rags to riches’ fairy story. It tells the tale of young Cinderella; daughter of Baron Stoneybroke.
The Baron has fallen on hard times after his two step daughters have racked up massive shopping bill debts. Meanwhile at home, Cinderella is bullied by her two stepsisters but supported by Buttons, the last servant in the house. Behind the scenes the evil Demon King is trying to get his hands on a magic pendant belonging to the Baron’s family.
Whilst in the forest collecting firewood, Cinderella meets the handsome Prince Charming and they fall in love at first sight. With the assistance of her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella goes to the ball where, rushing away as the magic fails at midnight, she leaves behind a shoe.
Cinderella will be performed at the Progress Hall, Admiral Seymour Road, Eltham, on Wednesday, January 22 (6.30pm); January 23 (7.45pm), January 24 (7.45pm), January 25 (2.15pm and 7.45pm). Tickets £7 (£6 cons) available at the box office on: 07502 450 983.

During her captaincy, Pam has staged a host of charity days at the club in Station Road, Shoreham by holding quizzes, raffles and afternoon teas to raise funds for her cause, the Freddie Farmer Foundation.
Among some of the items she has raffled was a selection of items donated from fellow members of the club, including whisky and wine. Supporters also donated homemade marmalade and home-grown tomato plants to the cause.

Charity founder Deanne Farmer said: “Pam is a great friend to the charity. She has worked so hard to achieve this figure, we can’t thank her enough.”
