Quince Players supporting Martha
The Quince Players Charity Gala Night supported Martha's Magic Steps and raised over eight hundred pounds which is a fantastic amount and will go towards continued therapy and specialist equipment to support Martha's development.
Many thanks to the Quince Players for their continued support of Martha and the whole family.
