A VILLAGE pantomime has already raised more than £1,000 for two charities.

The Foxton Luvvies will be performing their 2013 pantomime, Cinderella, at Melbourn Village College tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday.

Proceeds from the show are being split between the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Half Pipe Project, which aims to build a skateboard and scooter park in Foxton.

Mark Howard, from the Foxton Luvvies, said: “A lot of hard work has been put in and already they have raised in sponsorship and advertising revenue over £1,000 with more to come for the two charities.”

The show features a cast of village residents including Ada Cambridge, captain of Cambridge City Football Club, as one of the ugly sisters.

Shows start at 7.30pm, with a 3pm matinee on Saturday, and tickets are still available from Foxton Shop and the White Horse pub, or by calling 01223 870067. Adults cost £6, children £4, with a family ticket £20 (two adults and three children). Children under three go free.
