A Cinderella Day OutSunday, 01 May 2011
Local children were again entertained to a pantomime – Cinderella this time – by Warwickshire masons in conjunction with TOA Taxis, in a performance at the Provincial head offi ce at Stirling Road, Edgbaston. There were two performances by professional theatre company Chaplins – one mainly for children with learning and physical disabilities, the other for children who might not have seen a live theatre show before. Around 600 children attended the two performances assisted by 140 carers. Warwickshire Provincial Grand Master David Macey introduced the morning show and welcomed the Lady Mayoress of Birmingham, Councillor Mrs Gillian Gregory, who received a £500 cheque towards her charity. Thanks went to TOA Taxis for arranging transport, West Midlands Police for liaising with local schools and ensuring the traffic flow went smoothly, Office Christmas for providing the magnificent room decorations, staff and helpers from the Clarendon Suites and the schools attending, Father Christmas and his helpers and the Birmingham South-West Group Residents Association. Magician Peter Pocelli provided extra entertainment.
