On Saturday 15 June a group of Calendar Girls cast members  reprised their  roles for a short performance at  “Relay for Life”*,  the annual 24-hour fund-raising event organised  by the Fondation contre le Cancer.   They were invited to the event to officially mark the handover of the €7,000 raised for the cancer charity by the ECC’s production of the play, which took place in March at the Beaux Arts.

A dying John gives his wife a gift of sunflower seeds, a very poignant moment in the play.

 

After watching the performance the President of the Foundation Pam Showalter told director Janet Middleton that such a large donation made a very real difference.  Thank you again to our sponsors, our generous audiences and congratulations to Janet and her excellent cast.
