Picturesque Donation Helps Court Theatre

Christchurch print and design company The Caxton Press has donated a percentage from the proceeds of Peter Morath's book CHRISTCHURCH: A NOSTALGIC TRIBUTE, raising $10,000 for The Court Theatre's fundraising appeal.

Caxton's Managing Director Bruce Bascand says "the response to Peter's photographic essay on pre and post quake Christchurch has been wonderful; as long-term supporters of The Court we are delighted to be able to donate to the theatre."

Artistic Director of The Court Theatre, Ross Gumbley, says "we are thrilled by this generous donation. The Caxton Press has found a way to both celebrate our city's past and contribute towards its future at the same time." The donation will be used to replace assets lost in the Arts Centre.
