A CHEQUE for £265 has been donated to the Alzheimer’s Society courtesy of the Harleston Players’ latest production.

The money was raised through audience donations when the Players performed Terry Pratchett’s play Maskerade in May, as well as a raffle for one of the cast members - a cat puppet which played the part of Greebo.

Mike Davison, director of the show, said: “We chose the society for our fundraising as Terry Pratchett suffers from Alzheimer’s. Helen Farrar, who produced the show, also works for Studio Landia day centre, which provides day care for the elderly, including those with Alzheimer’s.”

The cat was won by soundman Laurence Nunn, and will be returning to future productions as the sound-desk mascot.
