Bawdy Panto supports MS research

Christmas came early for the Menzies Research Centre when it received a $10,000 cheque from the cast of the 2023 Bawdy Panto to assist its ongoing MS research programs.

Professor Bruce Taylor said a donation of this size would make a real difference to the centre’s ongoing projects.

“Receiving a donation like this from such a great organisation like the Bawdy Panto means a lot to us,” he said.

“Financial support is unbelievably important for the medical community.

“At this stage, we plan to put this money into completing one of our clinical trials, where we are trying to figure out how to repair people’s brains.”

Bawdy Panto producer and performer Daryl Peebles said the donation was indicative of the Hobart community’s generosity.

“The Menzies Centre is an icon in Tasmania and we are very proud to support the great work it does,” he said.

“The outstanding generosity of Tasmanians is almost legendary.

“It’s wonderful to have an outlet like the Bawdy Panto where performers get to have fun for a good cause.”
