A recent summer garden party held by our LMS family raised £500 for Ayrshire Cancer Support – a group providing emotional support and practical help to those affected by cancer.

Members of LMS presented the cheque to Ayrshire Cancer Support between rehearsals for our forthcoming production of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat running 2 – 6 October at The Palace Theatre, Kilmarnock.

Treasurer Stephen McIlwraith said “As a registered charity, Loudoun Musial Society have supported local organisations throughout our 42 year history. The work Ayrshire Cancer Support does for those affected by cancer is amazing and we felt this was a cause we were really keen to support”.

Headquartered at 5 Dundonald Road, Kilmarnock, Ayrshire Cancer Support has, since 1982 has provided emotional support and practical help to those affected by cancer. Their aim is to improve the quality of life of those living with cancer and ensure that help is readily available throughout Ayrshire for those who need it including volunteers driving patients to hospital appointments in their own cars.

Their services have a positive impact on the community by providing much-needed help and support.  All services are provided free of charge and funded entirely by contributions from the public, fund-raising events and the revenue from their 10 charity shops.

Pictured from LMS are members of our Joseph cast: David Mcilwraith (Joseph), Lynsey Campbell (Narrator), David Mutch (Pharaoh), Hugh Wallace (Brother) and Stephen Mcilwraith (Judah).

Tickets for Joseph are in very short supply – available from Palace Theatre directly!
