A HAMPSHIRE pub donated all its profits from serving food at a theatre group's summer production back to the theatre.

The Thomas Lord Pub provided gourmet pizzas to audience members of West Meon Theatre’s 30th anniversary production 'TOAD' over the summer.

This month, the pub in West Meon handed over a £1,050 cheque, raised from the show nights, to the amateur theatre group.

Director Mary Dawson said: “This very generous donation from the Thomas Lord will enable us to change the West Meon Theatre’s lighting to LED technology, thus allowing us to generate more moods and bring additional atmosphere to our stage presentations.

"Alongside this, we will be reducing electricity usage and helping Hampshire’s drive to a net zero carbon footprint.

“We are so grateful to the Thomas Lord and Upham Inns.”

Ms Dawson founded the community group in 1993. West Meon Theatre celebrated 30 years with its own adaptation of The Wind in the Willows including original music and songs.

TOAD had a cross-generational cast of 27, with more than 75 members involved in West Meon Theatre in total.
