PADSTOW'S Kernow Players have presented £4,000 to good causes with the proceeds of their successful production of Calendar Girls.

The theatre group handed £1,000 to CLIC Sargent, the Chestnut Appeal, Cornwall Hospice Care and Children's Hospice South West at the Little Theatre in Padstow at the weekend.

Sue Norfolk, chairman of The Kernow Players, said: "This show came on the back of a 2012 fundraising success when we held a charity ball and produced our own version of a nude calendar to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust, in which we raised over £3,000.

"So in a moment of madness when I heard that the performing rights had been made available for a limited time for the stage play, I foolishly suggested that it might be fun to put on the play in our own Little Theatre.

Mrs Norfolk said raising the staggering amount of £4,000 was no mean feat given that they were a small company, and thanked the people and business which had helped to make the production such a success, including those who donated raffle prizes.

Among those pictured are, Judith Alcock, KP vice-chairman; Debbie Henshaw, Cornwall Hospice Care; Julie Nicholls, producer; Mary Murfin, CHSW Little Harbour; Sue Norfolk, KP chairman; Stephanie Cherington-Rimmell, CLIC Sargent; and Angela Reskelly, show's director.
