Romford’s Stage One Theatre Company donates to Help for Heroes
A Romford-based theatre group performed an act of kindness when they presented a cheque to Help for Heroes.
Award-winning Stage One Theatre Company, in Eastern Road, handed �1950 to the charity, which helps injured servicemen and women.
Denise Speight, Essex Group coordinator for the charity, accepted the donation, alongside Havering Mayor Cllr Melvin Wallace, and Deputy Lieutenant of Havering, Colonel Mark Bryant.
The money was raised following the theatre group’s production of The Sound of Music were donations were made in memory of Jessie Sepple and Edward Sepple; the company director’s grandparents, who sadly passed away within just five days of each other in January.
Grandson Jai Sepple sadi: “The Sound of Music was their favourite musical, even naming their house in Collier Row, Edelweiss, after the famous song from the show. Help For Heroes was their favourite charity and such a worthy cause.”
