As part of our recent production, Sunshine on Leith, Sunderland Theatre Company decided to raise money for Help for Heroes, a charity supports thousands of brave men and women and their families from the Armed Forces. Whilst we were working on the product, the charity invited our principal cast members to visit their local facilities at Catterick Garrison. Our members learnt a lot about the services provided and were inspired by the work that goes on. In total, we managed to raise over £500 for the charity and even had the honour of having two of their veterans come and see the show.
