Generous panto punters raised more than £7,000 for a local charity during the Christmas and New Year run in Tunbridge Wells. The funds were raised for the Pembury-based Heart of Kent Hospice at performances of the Assembly Hall Theatre panto Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which starred Su Pollard of 80s sitcom Hi-de-Hi!

The annual collection came to £7,320.61, raised from  bucket collections at the end of each performance during the three-week run.

The hospice provides compassionate, individual, holistic and supportive care for patients with a terminal illness, their families, and carers in west Kent and East Sussex.

Beth Swarbrigg, from the hospice, said: “The theatre has been supporting Hospice in the Weald for over 18 years and we are delighted that once again the theatre has chosen the Hospice to benefit from their annual pantomime collection.

Kaye played cafe owner Rene Artois on the hit show, which centred on the fictional exploits of resistance fighters in World War Two in German-occupied France.

Su Pollard, who appeared with Kaye in four series of BBC radio comedy For Better or for Worse, told the BBC the actor was “very clever, witty and amusing”.

It was a hi-de-hi-de-happy birthday for one of the borough’s best-loved theatres on Sunday with sitcom actress Su Pollard on hand to cut the cake.

This year, the glass gong went to producer Katy Lipson, who was thanked for the quality of shows she has brought to the theatre. She returns with That’s Jewish Entertainment next month.

Ms Pollard, who starred in Hi-De-Hi! and You Rang M’Lord?, said: “Theatres like this are special. They bring people to see fantastic shows and fantastic casts.”
