REP celebrates 101 Appeal

Theatre’s call to businesses is spot on, raising £34,000 for kids

The REP hosted a special event to mark the culmination of its successful 101 Businesses Appeal. The appeal, which coincided with the theatre’s festive production of The Hundred And One Dalmatians, recruited 108 local businesses and raised more than £34,000 – providing over 1,300 tickets for local disadvantaged children and families to see the production. Representatives from the businesses came together to celebrate their achievement and hear some of the wonderful feedback from beneficiaries of the appeal. Groups that benefited included children with learning disabilities, and families living in sheltered accommodation.
