CARTOON characters Tom and Jerry handed out leaflets to promote a musical show at Durham’s Gala Theatre.
However, the characters don’t appear in Some Enchanted Evenings, which is a tribute to the film and stage music of Richard Rodgers.
Amy Pink, from Plains Farm, of Pink’s Party Animals, explained: “I know Tom and Jerry are nothing to do with the show, but my daughter is in it, and I heard they are going to have a collection each night for St Cuthbert’s hospice in Durham City.
“I like to help any charities I can, so I decided to bring the characters down to Durham to help promote ticket sales.
“I’m sure it will be a good show, and there will be a chance to contribute to a worthwhile cause.”
Some Enchanted Evenings, staged by Durham Musical Theatre Company, opens at the Gala on June 20 for three days.
Tickets from the box office, call 332 4041.
