Wolves Grand panto star Su Pollard backs Feed a Family campaign
She may be playing the evil Queen Rat in Wolverhampton Grand's pantomime but Su Pollard has proven she has a big heart by backing our Feed a Family This Christmas appeal.
The Hi-de-Hi! star took time out of rehearsals to show her support the Express & Star's campaign which is helping individuals and families across the Black Country and Staffordshire.
Sue, who taking to the stage in the theatre's 125th Anniversary pantomime Dick Whittington, said: "It's good to support causes like this at this time of the year."
With the help of our readers, we are aiming to provide families with Christmas treats they would otherwise not be able to afford, as well as supplying them with store cupboard essentials to keep them going through the festive season.
The causes we are supporting this year are the Black Country Food Bank, which has centres across Dudley, Sandwell and Walsall, The Well (Home of Wolverhampton Food Bank), the Good Shepherd Ministry, based in Wolverhampton, and Cannock and District Food Bank.
We are also collecting chocolate selection boxes for the Haven refuge in Wolverhampton which provides both practical and emotional support services to women and children who are affected by domestic violence and homelessness.
These can be dropped off at our offices in Queen Street and will be given to youngsters to help spread some much-needed Christmas cheer.
All of these good causes are helping individuals and families in need every day and have seen numbers needing support continue to rise.
The appeal will run until Saturday, December 14 and donations can be taken to:
- Express & Star Wolverhampton head office: 51-53 Queen Street, Wolverhampton WV1 1ES
- Waitrose Wolverhampton, Marston Road, Wolverhampton WV2 4NJ
- Morrisons Bilston, Black Country Route, Bilston WV14 0DZ
- Tesco Heath Hayes, Hawks Green District Centre, Hayes Way, Cannock WS12 3YY
