Magnus Mutatio (Big Change) Hospital Revue Raises $14,000 for Charities
Two Waikato charities are the recipients of $7000 each thanks to the “thespian” talents of Waikato District Health Board (DHB) staff.
For three nights at the end of August staff put on a show - Magnus Mutatio ‘Big Change’ - at Hamilton’s Clarence Street Theatre to raise money from ticket sales for Waikato @ Heart and Arts for Health.
Waikato DHB chief executive Craig Climo presented cheques to each of the charities today.
“"I never miss a revue. It show cases our abundance of thespian talent and is obviously as much for the participants as it is the audience with the bonus that it raises funds for small health related charities that ordinarily would not receive Government funding.
“My thanks to the organising committee for all the effort that goes into the event and selecting the charities,” he said.
All proceeds are available for distribution to charitable organisations and smaller charities are chosen that typically miss out on main stream funding. Neither charity receives Government funding.
Waikato @ Heart is a charity which supports children requiring heart surgery and their family throughout their health journey through to adulthood.
Arts for Health are a trust that supports people recovering from illness or injury through arts and crafts activity.
The committee thanked all staff who contributed to the revue, which is staged every two years.
