A South Manchester-based amateur dramatics group has donated £500 to Seashell Trust.
Junior Stage 80 staged four sell-out performances of Oliver! at Sale Waterside Arts Centre in December.
Cast member Andrew Farley's son James, who is 17 from Bramhall and who has an autism spectrum condition, has recently started attending at Seashell Trust..
Andrew played the miserable Mr Sowerberry in the production of Oliver and trod the boards alongside his other sons Daniel and Julian.
