A NIGHT of theatre and wine was presented by Rushen Players in aid of the charity, Robert Owen House.
Their production of the satirical comedy The Real Inspector Hound and the ghost story ‘Oh Whistle and I’ll Come to You’ provided a great evening’s entertainment and raised £800.
Adrienne Sanderson of Rushen Players presented the cheque to chairman of Robert Owen House, Glenda Corkish, alongside John Bethell of The Erin Arts Centre in Port Erin.
Robert Owen House provides accommodation in a safe and welcoming environment, to the relatives and carers of those patients requiring treatment at the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital.
Glenda reports that the annual target is £25,000 and is happy to say that it looks like 2012 will actually exceed this.
Recently one of Rushen Players members, Ian Galloway personally raised a remarkable sum of more than £1,500 by being sponsored to have his head of hair and beard shaved to demonstrate his gratitude for when he and his wife Margaret were beneficiaries of the charity.
