Bosses at Leamington's Royal Spa Centre are hoping that this year's panto, Snow White, will be a big boost for their chosen charity, Helping Hands.
The panto, an Imagine Theatre production starring Warwickshire favourites JP McCue and Sean Dodds, opens on Saturday (Dec 7).
The Centre expects some 23,000 people to come through its doors in December, and hopes are high that this year they can beat the £10,000 that was raised last year for the charity Zoe's Place.
Helping Hands is a Leamington-based charity which runs a number of projects to help local people in need, including a soup kitchen which serves hundreds of meals every month to people who may otherwise go without a hot meal.
A Royal Spa Centre team helped with the soup kitchen on December 2 and served up soup to more than 40 people.
Marketing officer Jess White said: “It was great fun and it gave us an insight into the amazing work that Helping Hands do. There's no better feeling than putting a smile on someone's face or helping someone in need. We are delighted to be supporting Helping Hands this year."
Volunteers will be collecting for the charity at the end of every pantomime performance.
