Last Wednesday, the cast and crew of Fortune Theatre's latest play “Jeeve’s and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense” were invited to join Daffodil House guests for World Cancer Day.
Volunteers, staff, family and guests of Daffodil House were delighted by the performance which was followed by a morning tea of scones and laughter.
With the Fortune Theatre’s new season kicking off next Saturday “Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense”, performed a snippet, giving a taste of what to expect on the night with their comedic talents and quick costume changes.
The Fortune Theatre have also very kindly donated a benefit performance on Wednesday, 14 February to the Cancer Society, with the profits from the play’s revenue on the day going to support the services that the Society provides. This includes Daffodil House, a home-away-from-home for those people from around Otago and Southland who come to Dunedin for cancer treatment.
Chris Green, Marketing and Communications Manager for the Cancer Society said “The Cancer Society relies on support from the community, and with no direct government support, fundraising through initiatives like this are all important.”
His comments were reinforced by Amie, the play’s Stage Manager who said The Fortune is a big part of the community, and it is important that where we can, we support places like Daffodil House who play a huge role in the lives of those going through cancer. “If we can help in any way we can to brighten their day or make their stay a bit more enjoyable, we are happy to do so.”
