The Karen Mitchell Theatre Group celebrates 25 years of fundraising

The Karen Mitchell Theatre Group has celebrated 25 years of fundraising for CLIC Sargent, having raised over £2,300 in support of children and young people with cancer.

May Gilchrist & Karen Mitchel at a cheque presentation to celebrate Malcolm Sargent's Houses 25th anniversary.

25 years ago CLIC Sargent's Malcom Sargent House, opened and began providing free holiday accomodation for the families of children and young people undergoing cancer treatment.

Local people were eager to volunteer with CLIC Sargent and help raise funds to support those staying at Malcom Sargent.

Karen Mitchell, a grade examiner for the Royal Academy of Dance, used her many connections in the arts to do what she could for the families staying at the house.

A quarter of a century later, Karen Mitchell Theatre Group is celebrating raising an incredible £2,329.60 to help support children and young people with cancer, and their families.
