Weʼre raising £50,000 to Raise funds for the Roy Hudd Statue Appeal
Don't have time to donate right now?
There was a little less laughter in the world when Roy Hudd died in 2020.
He brought so much pleasure, to so many of all ages through his work as a performer.
Throughout his 64 year career he never forgot his roots and how hard times had been for him and his gran, (who never complained) as a boy growing up in Croydon.
He always wanted to do something for those who, for whatever reason, needed a little help. Not only did he donate to many charities, the likes of Barnardo's, Shelter, Cancer UK, and The Dog Trust, to name but a few. But he gave what I think was his most treasured asset, his time.
Whether it be putting on a show or turning up to an event to help raise funds. He would always say, "We're privileged to be doing a job we love, if we can use it to help others, well that's marvelous".
He gave joy to others all his working life, so I would love us to be able to show our appreciation for a kind, generous and talented man by raising money for a statue of Roy in Bronze. Not high up on a pedestal, that certainly wasn't Roy, he’ll be sitting on a bench where you can join him for your interval ice cream or gin and tonic, hopefully at The Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, a theatre he loved, greeting new audiences for years to come.
