Giving back – Radio Interview

Pantomime and Giving back

Radio Manchester

Debbie Cooper, producer and director of our Pantomimes, has been interviewed today, 10th April, by Radio Manchester! She was asked about the Giving Back award and the difference that it will make in the local area. The interview took place at our church hall, the venue for the Pantomime.

The recording was originally planned to go out on Wednesday 11th April. But it’s been delayed while the BBC add more to the piece.

Radio Manchester can be found on 95.1 MHz and 104.6 MHz.

Giving Back – background

Debbie and team were recently awarded £1200 for Pantomime equipment as part of the Greater Manchester Police ‘Giving Back’ initiative. This re-uses money seized from criminals – so it gives back to those who are looking to the make area in which they live the best place it can possibly be.


Our annual Pantomime attracts young people from the local area and so it fitted the criteria of making the community a happier, healthier and safer place to live. The Pantomime takes place in February each year. However, there are months of planning and rehearsals before that.

Debbie’s team were pitching against a number of other short-listed bids and so did really well to come out with such an award.
