AS Buckingham Community Pantomime put on its latest offering, Snow White, last Saturday, members of the panto team handed over a giant cheque to local youth charity Project Street Life, out of the profits of last year’s panto.

Chairman of Buckingham Community Panto Roger Edwards said: “One of the main aims of the pantomime has always been to distribute any profits that are made to local groups.

“The pantomime has always encouraged young people to participate and for that reason Project Street Life has always been close to the heart of the panto.

“Both organisations share similar values that everybody, regardless of their age, should be treated with respect, be encouraged to be part of the community, should take on responsibilities and be able to have fun in a safe environment.

“Because of those shared values, over the years around £5,000 has been given to PSL by the pantomime. We are very pleased to be able to provide the latest donation to help PSL provide an Internet Café from which young, and perhaps not so young, people will be able to benefit.”
