Just the ticket!

Steve Carr, of Herne Bay, is the winner of the Marlowe 5/Kuoni luxury holiday prize draw – and it was perfect timing!
The environmental consultant had cancelled a holiday because his partner, Rebecca Burns, had been taken ill. In fact, he had just dropped her off at Kent and Canterbury Hospital for tests when he received a call from us, saying he’d won the week-long trip for two to Mauritius.
Steve, who is a Marlowe Friend and regularly attends a variety of shows, said: "I’d completely forgotten I’d entered the draw and couldn’t believe it when I was told I’d won. After 18 months of bad news, it couldn’t have come at a better time."
The prize draw was held to celebrate both The Marlowe’s fifth anniversary and Kuoni’s five years in Canterbury. Proceeds from the draw (£4,526) went to The Marlowe’s Creative Opportunities Fund, which ensures the theatre continues to create projects and deliver creative activities that improve lives, encourage aspiration in young people and bring communities together through the power of theatre.
