A SELL-OUT production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing raised £3,500 for mental health charity Hammersley Homes.

The special one-off show by Troubadour Stage Works saw 300 picnickers enjoy an evening of mayhem and mistaken identity in the garden of Kingfishers, in Normandy Lane, Lymington.

Altogether the evening raised £6,000 which was divided between Troubadour Stage Works and Hammersley Homes, which is based in Lymington and established in 2018.

Spokesperson Juliette Freedman welcomed the funds, saying: “We currently have a very long waiting list of clients needing support and can’t meet demand at the moment.”
