WWRY Raises £51k For The MPT!
Throughout the year, collections for the Mercury Phoenix Trust have been made at The Dominion Theatre. But the theatre’s commitment to the MPT doesn’t just stop there. On 14th August members of staff from The Dominion Theatre and crew from We Will Rock You took a leap of faith and skydived in aid of the MPT, raising £12,372. This, together with the money raised with the collections, raised a total of £50,640.86 for the Mercury Phoenix Trust.
On World AIDS Day a gala evening was held at the opening night of We Will Rock You at the Edinburgh Playhouse. Brian May supported the event by making a special performance during the show, attended by celebrity supporters of the charity. The evening raised £1,090,64 for the MPT.
This brings the total raised by We Will Rock You audiences in the UK to an incredible £51,731.50.
Thank you to all involved and here’s to a rockin’ 2012!
