There are many causes that people are fighting for right now and I love to support movers and creators within the industry. It's a tough old business this acting game, so we all need to rally round and support each other.

One of those people we need to be supporting right now is Lysanne Overbeek. Actor and director (plus around kind hearted person) Lysanne has created a theatre production in aid of The Cure Parkinson's Trust.

Now I don't know much about Parkinsons, nor has it ever affected my life. However, one in every 500 people suffer with it and Lysanne's mother is no different.

As you know I am a big believer in using our platform as actors and creatives to help and raise awareness. So let's all get behind this cause and help raise the money to fund the research to support so many people.

Lysine's show is running at St John's Church in Waterloo on the 24th November at 7:30pm. Tickets are £12.50 and rather than getting an actual ticket, your money goes straight to the trust.

To attend all you have to do is donate £12.50 to this Just Giving page and then pop along for an evening of excellent theatre pieces, all in the name of The Cure.

Obviously you can donate more money, and if you can't attend even the littlest amount can help those in need.

I am a massive fan of these charities as when my mum was diagnosed with cancer, MacMillan were there for her and helped her through emotional and financially support.

I hope to see you there as I will be donating my time to take some photos. See you at the bar.

Here is the link again and let's support this wonderful cause.
