A St Albans theatre company has raised more than £3,000 for a tiger conservation charity.
A performance of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing was put on by the Marmalade Theatre Company at the gardens of Robert and Wendy May at Hogg End, St Albans, and met with generous donations for the David Shephard Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) from the audience.
Sally Case, chief executive of the DSWF said: “We’d like to thank everyone who supported the production. Donations from the audience mean that over £3,000 was raised to support critical tiger conservation work across Asia.”
She added: “We know how much time and effort is put in by everyone involved in staging these wonderful productions and would like to share our heartfelt thanks with everyone.”
The donation was presented to the charity on August 20 by the production’s director Sue Dyson and the theatre company’s hosts Robert and Wendy May.

With as few as 3,000 wild tigers left, funding is vital to ensure safe habitats for the animals.
