A 16-year-old has raised more than £900 towards her drama club’s trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival later this year by sitting in a bath of beans in St Ives town centre for a day.
St Ivo pupil Annabelle Carder sat in the tub of baked beans on Saturday (May 2) for 10 hours to raise money for the St Ives Youth Theatre.
The drama club plans to stage a play called Vision at the Fringe – with a cast of 60 aspiring actors and singers – at an estimated cost of £32,000.
It took more than 150 cans to fill the bath, which were emptied into Tupperware containers the night before, a task that took about three hours in itself.
“It was absolutely disgusting. Having your feet in it was
horrible,” said Annabelle, who raised £70 earlier in the year for the same cause by taking part in
a nine-mile fun run around Grafham Water.
