Charity cash well worth baring all for

A THEATRE company went the Full Monty to raise £1,400 for prostate cancer charities.

Alcester Musical Theatre Company collected the funds through their adaption of the hit film which took to the stage of the Palace Theatre last October.

They sold programmes and calendars at the shows and held buckets after each performance for an extra boost to the cause.

All the money was split between Worcestershire’s Rory the Robot campaign and Prostate Cancer UK.

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust’s Rory appeal aims to raise £1.6 million for a surgical robot to treat patients with prostate cancer across the county.

With Rory’s assistance, patients will benefit from less pain, minimal blood loss and reduced complications.

David Hill, theatre company member and chief radiographer at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust said: “Prostate cancer is the most common cause of cancer in men, so we felt these charities were very fitting for such a show.

“Working at the Alexandra Hospital, the Rory the Robot campaign is close to my heart. It was great to be able to fund-raise in such an entertaining way.”
