Helping Others

Over the last 40 years WAGS have helped many local and national charities by raising money and awareness of the work that they do. The money has been raised in many different ways. The Cast raise it during the rehearsals and back stage at the theatre by things as diverse as:

Baking cakes and selling them
Shaving hair off
Guess the gang member from photos of their legs
Dressing the producer up in silly costumes
Slave auctions

And then of course there have been collections at the end of the performances.

This year we are supporting “The Mat Davis Foundation for Terminal Cancer”; The Mat Davis Foundation is a small Foundation, based in Warwick and inspired by a truly remarkable young man – Mat Davis. Their vision is to be recognised within the local area as a support foundation that makes a difference to local people’s lives and that continues year after year.
