We are delighted to announce that thanks to your generosity, we have more than doubled our target for The Big Christmas Appeal.

Throughout the festive period our pantomime audiences put money into our collection buckets, customers added donations to their bookings when buying tickets and our supporters responded generously to our appeals. 

We have also been very lucky as Lyn Glass, a former chair of Poole Arts Trust the charity responsible for running Lighthouse, offered to match all the donations made from the 18 December onwards – which turned out to be over £4,000 in match-funding. This combined with what we can claim in Gift Aid has meant that the appeal raised over £20,000 in total.

That’s around 1,600 additional free or discounted tickets that we can give to children, families and local people who experience disadvantage next year.

Thank you for your generous support!
