Panto stars delight hospice families
STARS from the Queen’s Theatre pantomime took time out from entertaining the people of North devon to help spread some festive cheer to the families at the Children’s Hospice South West.
Cast members from Aladdin, including Northam entertainer Merlin Cadogan, who plays Policeman Pong, and Antony Stuart-Hicks, who plays Widow Twankey, visited Little Bridge House in Fremington.
The smiles that radiated from the hospice’s youngsters and adults told their own story after the stars of the show turned up in full costume to hand out gifts and entertain the families who are currently having a respite break at the hospice.
The hospice is a friendly ‘home from home’ where the whole family can make the most of the precious time they have together.
Adele Sims, who cares for the siblings at Little Bridge House said:”At CHSW we do all we can to create magical memories for our children and their families to cherish and this fun- filled visit is a moment they will never forget. Thank-you to the cast for giving up their time to come and visit us.”
