BA CREW PUT ON THE PERFORMANCE OF THEIR LIVES
The British Airways Cabin Crew Entertainment Society (BACCES) has used some of the funds raised from its most recent pantomime “Now that’s what I call Panto” in 2012, to support musicians through the Royal Society of Musicians of Great Britain (RSM.)
BACCES, who have been performing to audiences of thousands for 40 years, have handed over £3,000 to the RSM, which will enable them to provide assistance for those in the music profession when in need due to accidents, illness or old age. The donation was inspired by the team’s musical director Bobbie Field, who felt that the RSM should be recognised for the great contribution it had made to music and musicians over the last century.
Werner Schwardtmann, the Chairman at BACCES said: “We are extremely proud to be able to offer the Royal Society of Musicians our support in our 40th anniversary year. Our annual show has raised over one million pounds for charity, and our members donate the money to worthy causes which are close to their hearts.”
Justin Pearson from the Royal Society of Musicians said: “This generous donation from BACCES will allow us to continue the great work of the society and support many more Britain’s talented musicians and their families.”
BACCES has kindly donated and presented Basepoint Camberley with a cheque for £250 for our own local charity.
A big Thank you!!!!
