KD Productions are kindly helping Robert Barnes and his team to raise funds and awareness for Lisa’s Fund and Arthur Rank Hospice, during the run of their pantomime ‘Aladdin’!
‘Aladdin’ will work its magic for Lisa’s Fund this December and January
Throughout the 24-day run, from 22 December to 15 January, Lisa’s Fund will have a table in the bar of The Maltings Ely providing a wonderful opportunity for pantomime-goers and families to find out more about the new Hospice and its progress, discover more about events and initiatives they might be able to help with and donate via a collection tin should they wish. The Charity continues to work hard to raise the remaining £2.2 million required for its £10.5 million new home which opened in November.
Robert Barnes, who founded Lisa’s Fund in memory of his wife and has now raised an incredible grand total of £148,500 for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, adds: “I’d like to say a huge thank you Kathrine, Dan and all the KD Productions team for their support – it’s opportunities like this which make it possible to keep on raising funds and awareness for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. Lisa and I experienced the Hospice’s care ourselves and it was so, so very important. With the wonderful support of the local community I’ve been able to carry on raising the Hospice’s profile and keep fundraising so that such essential care is available for more people like us, both now and into the future.”
Robert Barnes and Arthur Rank Hospice Charity would like to offer a huge thank you, to Kathrine, Dan & KD Productions for their wonderful support and best wishes for a successful magic-carpet-filled run of ‘Aladdin’!

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families.
We care for more than 4,100 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.
It will cost £10.5 million in 2021/2022 to run our services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We have currently secured £6.98 million from the NHS, meaning that £3.52 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. We are extremely grateful to our local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to meet this target.
