Eastleigh thespians raise money for CRY via annual pantomime

Eastleigh thespians have raised hundreds of pounds for charity via their annual pantomime.

Money from the Concorde Club’s pantomime charity fund has been donated to the Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) charity. Club proprietor Cole Mathieson presented the charity with a cheque for £1,750.

CRY ambassador Mary Abraham, whose 16-year-old son Philip died in his sleep in 1995, said:

“It’s fantastic to receive this amount of money. We hope to put it towards a heart screening project for teenagers in the local area.”

CRY hopes to raise awareness of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) and is campaigning to make national heart screening available to people of all ages.
