Malvern Theatres’ Covid-19 Emergency Appeal has now reached an astonishing £181,000 thanks to generous support from the local community.
The Covid crisis is far from over for theatres though, despite Malvern gradually reopening its auditoria to socially distanced visitors.
With no end in sight, Malvern Theatres is still actively fundraising and aims to secure £200,000 by Christmas.
Chief Executive Nic Lloyd said: “I’ve been at the helm of Malvern Theatres for more than two decades and never faced such a challenging situation as this.
“The support of our community has been astonishing though, so thank you. Without our audiences, I don’t know where we would be today.
“Sadly, we cannot relax just yet. Our future remains uncertain and we will continue to fight this crisis until Malvern Theatres is safe.
“The theatre is at the heart of our community, bringing people together 364 days of the year. Not only that, the local economy relies on us for shoppers, diners, and hotel bookings.
“We must protect the theatre to protect the town.”
Aside from making a donation, which you can do online, you can support the theatre by choosing ‘Malvern Theatres’ as your designated Amazon Smile charity, hosting your own fundraiser with JustGiving or Facebook, or purchasing a membership or gift voucher for future use.
Malvern Theatres is open for cinema and some stage shows and concerts with strict social distancing in place. For cinema screenings visit the website. The next stage production is Talking Heads (13-17 October). 01684 892277. malverntheatres.co.uk
