Abbey Community Theatre normally support different charities through our fundraising raffles during performances. Since COVID began we have been unable to perform but we are finally returning to the stage this June but to ensure we are COVID secure we will not be hosting any in-person fundraising. Therefore we wanted to set up this page to help fundraise for our chosen charity. You don’t have to attend a performance or be a member to show your support for this fantastic charity. All donations through this site go directly to the charity.

The Lewis Foundation sources, packages and hand delivers free gift packs to adult cancer patients in hospital and the community – weekly items that they might find difficult to buy themselves or simply cannot afford. It can be a sad, frightening and lonely experience for individuals undergoing cancer treatment. For many people in hospital and the community, The Lewis Foundation volunteers are the only regular visitors to the patients. The Lewis Foundation has grown from delivering 80 gift packs to one hospital, to delivering over 2,500 to seven hospitals in the Midlands per month. They are Northampton General Hospital, BMI Three Shires Northampton, Kettering Hospital, Bedford Hospital, Luton & Dunstable Hospital, Leicester Royal Infirmary and Milton Keynes University Hospital Trust.

We understand that these are very difficult times, but if you would like to make a donation or simply know more about our chosen charity, then please visit our JustGivingTM donation page here.
