PAIN RAISES R27,000 (article first published : 2001-10-22)

On September 15, many local performers gave up their night off to appear in the launch of the Performing Artists Injury Network – or PAIN, for short – to help performing artists in physical need.

This was a benefit performance at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre and R27,000 was raised and the money’s still coming in.

The fund was started because Anthony Stonier - who many people will know from the Playhouse Cellar’s adult pantomime shows - suffered a heavy fall which could have paralysed him. Fortunately it didn’t but it certainly put him out of work. Which meant he had no income to pay the hospital bills.

Close friends rallied round, and out of this kind of support hovercraft came the idea for the PAIN fund.

The evening was such a success that it is expected to become an annual event and the amounts raised have covered Anthony Stonier’s medical bills leaving a certain amount in the account to form the nucleus of the future fund. The NBS savings account Number is 939 010 6770 and the Code number 720026.
