Customers booking tickets for upcoming performances at the Ipswich Regent Theatre and Corn Exchange can now donate to the British Red Cross Ukraine Appeal to help provide urgent supplies and aid to those affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
There has been over £1000 in donations in the first two days since we started this service. Ipswich Borough Council are using the donation button of the box office system of our theatres to allow customers to give to this appeal during the checkout of their tickets.
The donation appeal will be displayed automatically as customers move through the online booking process and those that don’t wish to donate can continue as normal.
Cllr Sarah Barber, Ipswich Borough Council Portfolio Holder for the Town Centre says: “Many of us are wondering how we can help the people of Ukraine during this desperate time of crisis. We hope that this donation option through our website gives our audience an easy opportunity to give support to the humanitarian work of the British Red Cross in Ukraine.”
