A Lowestoft theatre group has benefitted from the support of a regional housebuilder.

B&B Young People's Theatre Group been named as the latest recipient of a £1,000 Community Champions donation from Persimmon Homes.

The national match-funding scheme seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment across the region.

Andrew Fuller, managing director of Persimmon Homes Anglia, said: 'Activities to engage young people play an important role in developing healthy and prosperous local communities, so we are proud to support the work of B&B Theatre and look forward to seeing their performance next spring.'

A team of volunteers from B&B Theatre Company delivers a full-scale theatrical performance every year, giving about 40 young people the chance to take part, either as performers or backstage.

Auditions will soon be taking place for next Easter's show – The Sound of Music. Details of how to get involved can be found on the group's Facebook page www.facebook.com/thebandbyoungtheatre/
