We were delighted to welcome Mr Phil Wilson, Member of Parliament for Sedgefield to our performance of The Wind Road Boys at the Gala Theatre on Wednesday 12th June, 2013. Mr Wilson was so determined to see the show that he took time out from his extremely busy schedule to travel north from his Parliament duties in London so that he could see our young people perform.
Mr Wilson came to our performance of ‘Heroes’, in 2011, which raised over £4500 for Help for Heroes and Durham Rifles.
After the show, Mr Wilson met the cast backstage and gave the children an inspiring talk about their performance.
We would like to thank Mr Wilson for taking the time to share in our commitment to the young people of the Sedgefield Borough and County Durham generally.
