Weʼre raising £200 to Costumes and Props for The Raving Pink Panto, in Aid of Animal Free Research

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The Raving Pink Panto is a hilarious retelling of the classic Cinderella story, produced and performed by the Birmingham LGBT+ Community and their friends. Set to grace the stage in November 2018, this production will be in aid of Animal Free Research and can only be made possible by the generous donations of the community.

About Us: We are a group with a passion for our community and a drive to put on an incredible show to help find replacements for animal testing in medical and pharmaceutical fields. Our brilliant production team is as follows;

Producer - Jane McKears

Director - Amy Sharp

Script writer - Act one - Owen Archlimb

Script writer - Act two - Alexandra Taylor

Costume Designer - Natasha Pearson

Comic Song-writer - Kate Findlay

Scenic Artist - Paddy Broughton

About Animal Free Research: Animal Free Research UK is the UK’s leading non-animal medical research charity. They award grants to research existing techniques and develop new ones which are more human-relevant and will replace animal experiments. Only those projects with the highest scientific calibre and the best potential for the replacement of animals are awarded funding. They have awarded grants to over 200 projects that include research into cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, diabetes, kidney, heart and liver disease, to name a few. Through this research and by supporting other cutting-edge, animal free, research methodologies, there will be significant advances for more human-relevant medical research, benefiting the public health and reducing animal suffering. You can find more information at Animal Free Research

How Your Donations Help: All money raised will be spent on costumes, props, sets and other essentials to help make this project a reality. If you have any old clothing, fabric, costumes or props you think might be suitably panto-tastic and would like to donate, please contact our costume designer, Natasha Pearson, at

A huge thank you from all of us at Raving Pink Panto, and we'll see you all in November!
