CFT announces partnerships with local charities Dementia Support and UK Harvest

Chichester Festival Theatre is delighted to announce partnerships with local charities Dementia Support, which delivers services for people living with dementia and their family and carers in the West Sussex area, and UK Harvest, a perishable food rescue operation which delivers quality excess food from commercial outlets to charities.

The partnerships will see a number of special events dedicated both to fundraising and increasing awareness of the charities’ work over the coming year, including a Dementia Friendly performance of the summer musical South Pacific – the first such performance to be mounted by the Theatre.

Kathy Bourne, Executive Director of Chichester Festival Theatre, said: ‘We are very excited to be working with these two remarkable charities. Dementia Support and UK Harvest have already given brilliant presentations about their work to our staff and we’re looking forward to forging genuinely meaningful relationships which will see all three organisations interact with, and benefit from, each other’s mission.’

On 9 March the CFT podcast will be devoted to an interview to mark International Women's Day with Kathy Bourne of CFT, Sally Tabbner of Dementia Support, and Yvonne Thomson of UK Harvest:
