Newport Norse behind charity trip to panto – Oh yes they are!

January 2018

Newport Norse recently supported the Newport Women’s Aid (NWA) by supplying tickets for the Pantomime. 

 

For the second year running, thanks to Newport Norse children being supported by NWA were given the chance to see the traditional Christmas and New Year live entertainment.

 

This year 30 children and staff from NWA went to see Aladdin at The Riverfront Theatre, Newport.

 

One of the NWA staff who went spent as much time watching the children as watching the performance and commented; “They were all laughing so much, which was great to see and obviously really important, especially as some of these children do not have very much to laugh about”.

 

Dave Stephenson Acting Maintenance Manager at Newport Norse, who was key to organising the event, said; “I’m really pleased Newport Norse was able to fund this for a second year. It is really nice to give something to these kids who are having a difficult time. I’m already working on plans for Panto 2018”
