                                                          How the Blue Light Theatre Company started……….
 
Sally Waudby, a Paramedic at York, was diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease.  During her illness she remained very positive only becoming frustrated that she was losing her ability to communicate her needs and wants to those who cared for her.  She also lost her ability to socialise with friends.
 
Her friends and colleagues at the Yorkshire Ambulance Service decided to step in and organise a fundraising event (which raised £7500 in one night!)  in order to purchase an Eyegaze computer which gave Sally a way of communicating once again.   It is an amazing piece of kit which ultimately works on eye movement.  Towards the end of Sally’s life this gave her a voice even though she could no longer talk….. she never lost her sense of humour and was a whizz on it!!
 
Sadly, she only had the device for a short time before her untimely but inevitable death at age 50.  The computer is now being used by another person with the disease and giving them their voice and life for a little longer.
It was then decided to continue with the fundraising and the idea of performing a Pantomime was put forward.  It was originally intended to be a ‘one off’ but proved so popular that audiences, and the cast, demanded for more.
 
The Blue Light Theatre Company was then formed.
