Robin Hood Helps The Homeless

Generous Dukes theatregoers were inspired by Robin Hood to give to the poor this summer.

Thousands of people saw The Dukes new version of Robin Hood in Lancaster’s Williamson Park during its five-week run and at the end of each performance, they were invited to make donations to local homeless charities.

More than £4,000 was raised and shared between Lancaster’s Christ Church Night Shelter, Lancaster and District Homeless Action Service and West End Impact in Morecambe.

Homeless charities were chosen in memory of George Lowery, who slept rough in Williamson Park for many years and died there in March.
