Jane Austen Play raises £500 for WAA

A Powys play is helping to fund lifesaving helicopter missions across Wales.

The Alan Richards play, Austensibility, was written to commemorate 200 years since Jane Austen’s death, and is helping to raise donations for Wales Air Ambulance.

The Llandinam Drama Group hosted a play at the Llandinam village hall in May, in aid of the welsh helicopter charity.

Theatregoers gathered to see the play, with the proceeds donated to Wales Air Ambulance to fund the charity’s missions. The drama group raised £500 in donations through the weekend of theatre.

Every year, Wales Air Ambulance needs to raise £6.5 million to fund its services, with each of its missions across Wales costing around £1,500.

Diana Rowlands, Wales Air Ambulance Community Coordinator, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to the Producer and Director, Judith Marvin, all of the cast, and the theatregoers for their support.

“Not only did Austensibility celebrate Jane Austen’s life, but it is also helping us to keep our four helicopters flying across Wales.”
