The Nuffield Theatre has announced a joint partnership with Wave 105 FM’s Mission Christmas: Cash for Kids campaign.
The cultural venue, which is located at the heart of Highfield Campus, will be raising money for the charitable cause during their festive production of Merlin, which runs from 26th November to 3rd December.
All donations collected during this magical season will support Cash for Kids – a charity which provides support for children aged 0-18 that are living in poverty, disabled, disadvantaged, or suffering from abuse or neglect, by providing opportunities that will engage, spark imaginations, and help increase their self-confidence through art, music and sport.
Due to the alarming figures that around 54,000 children are living in poverty within an hour’s drive of the theatre, the Nuffield also has plans to launch a free ticket scheme for children under the charity’s care.
