A CHRISTMAS show raised a record amount for charity.

Traders at the Nineveh Antiques Centre staged two performances of Songs from the Shows last month, raising £1,400 for Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice.

The 2014 show was the third to be put on by the businessmen and women. They have raised a total of about £4,000 for the hospice.

Producer Trevor Wyatt said every penny taken in ticket and raffle ticket sales went to the hospice.

This was due to the generosity of the owner of Nineveh House, Climping, who met many of the costs, 
such as hiring the 
hall.

Other supporters also donated raffle prizes and helped with expenses such as advertising to boost the proceeds.

The latest cheque was handed over by Mr Wyatt with cast members Tricia Whelen, and Keith and Karen Holland, to Caroline-Roberts-Quigley, of the hospice, last Saturday.
