 Wildcats Theatre School and Post 16 Academy based in Stamford, Lincolnshire have today announced the total for their fundraising efforts during the Great Eastern Run and Fun Run 2012.

Members of Wildcats took on the challenge of running the fun run course on Sunday 14th October whilst founder of Wildcats, Caz Dolby and a few Wildcat mums took on the challenge of running the half marathon. The school committed to fundraising for two charities - their own West End Wildcats and also Peterborough based charity The Rudolf Fund.

The Rudolf Fund aims to ‘Make Christmas Special for Special Children’ by taking a group of disabled and disadvantaged children on a magical trip to Disneyland Paris at Christmas.

Wildcat students wanted to raise funds for a local good cause that would also offer them the chance to see the money being put to good use - the Rudolf Fund being ideal as members of Wildcats could also get involved with events such as the funds Christmas party.

On Sunday 18th November the Rudolf Fund held its annual Christmas party for children who were benefiting from the charity.  A cheque for £1,000 was presented by Wildcats students to the children at the party. Alongside the presentation Wildcat students supported children attending and played party games, took part in dances and encouraged children to take part throughout the party.

Caz Dolby, Founder of Wildcats, said: "'We are always keen to work with the local community and the Rudolf Fund was seen as a great charity that would offer Wildcats the chance to see their money put to good use. the Wildcat students loved taking part in the funds Christmas Party and particularly enjoyed the chance to present the big cheque directly to those who benefit."

Chrissie Rusdale, chairman of The Rudolf Fund, said: "We're truly humbled by the support we have received from all of the runners who took part in the Great Eastern Run. This incredible donation from Wildcats is very kind, hugely appreciated and shows the generosity of the wonderful people behind the theatre school."

Wildcats have classes throughout Peterborough, and also run specialist classes for children with additional needs/disabilities at their Academy in Stamford.  For more information go to  www.wildcatstheatreschool.co.uk
