Better Care

Magical memories thanks to generous grant

Thanks to a generous donation from the Boshier-Hinton Foundation, the children at Edgewood Road Children’s Home were treated to an amazing in-house performance by the Bamboozle Theatre Company.

The multi-sensory production was a tale of mountain peasant folk and the search for a mythical dragon that began with the performers explaining the story line in song which included the names of each child in the audience.

It was a fully immersive production and at one point the children and their carers were invited into a tent around a “camp fire” where they were wrapped in fur throws.

The Boshier-Hinton Foundation exists to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, learning difficulties or sensory impairment and their families, by the awarding of grants.

BCHC Charity Campaign Manager Angela Corry said: “The show was magical and the children were captivated, especially when the dragon appeared.

"I would like express our sincere thanks to the Boshier-Hinton Foundation for providing funds for such an engaging activity.”
