The cast of Glee3 Express Yourself joined the cheque handover in the Mayor's Parlour, Camden Town Hall, on Friday 26 April.
The cast of Glee3 Express Yourself, who performed at the Shaw Theatre last month, joined the Mayor and representatives from the Council’s COO-L project, YMCA and the New Horizon Youth Centre project at the handover of more than £4,000 raised by the production.
The giant £4,403 cheque was handed over in the Mayor’s Parlour on Friday, 26 April to Shelagh O’Connor, director of New Horizon youth project, and the Mayor of Camden, Councillor Heather Johnson.
The money will go to the Mayor’s two chosen charities - New Diorama Theatre, in Regent’s Park, and New Horizons youth project, in Somers Town, as well as the Teenage Cancer Trust Charity.
Produced by Let Me Play, and sponsored by Camden’s COO-L Project and the Central YMCA, Glee3 allowed young people to take part in a full stage production process and express themselves through music, drama and singing.
The sell-out show involved more than 100 young people from across the borough. The YMCA’s youth manager Laura Walsh also attended the cheque presentation on Friday.
