Staff at the Waterside Theatre will make teabreaks top priority from February 28 until March 6, as they Stop for Tea to raise vital funds for local NSPCC services.
‘Stirring themselves’ in aid of an exceptional cause, the local theatre will be providing tea for all their patrons before shows, in return for a donation to the NSPCC.
Iain Barr, General Manager of the Waterside Theatre said, “We are committed to raising money for the dedicated services provided by the NSPCC in the local area, and Stop for Tea is an excellent way to get involved. Enthusiasm among staff is at ‘boiling point’ as we prepare to get involved and I’m sure that, as ever, our patrons will be incredibly generous.”
NSPCC fundraising executive for Foyle, Deidre McLaughlin, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support of the Waterside Theatre, and are very excited about this particular fundraising drive. We all have a part to play in putting an end to child abuse. However, without the support of local people and businesses we would not be able to continue these services that are making a difference to the lives of so many local vulnerable children and young people.
“We thank those taking part in Stop for Tea for their generosity and support, and would encourage everyone in the area to make their teabreak count.”
