THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A share of the money you spend for entertainment will help poor cancer patients. Wonder how? In a rare move, the management of the Sree Padmanabha theatre in the city has decided to donate one per cent of the revenue from ticket sales to Pallium India, a city-based palliative care organisation.

 According to Gireesh Chandran, managing director of Sree Padmanabha, the scheme to help poor cancer patients will be introduced from Tuesday, the 40th anniversary of the theatre.

 Adding more lustre to the anniversary, the theatre has been awarded ISO certification by the Bureau of Accredited Register - America.  The audit was conducted by CR&DC. The certification was awarded considering qualities such as AC facilities, ambiance, light and sound system, 2k projector, 3D projector and cleanliness of toilets. Sree Padmanabha is the first theatre in Thiruvananthapuram to get ISO certification.

 The amount collected for cancer patients will be handed over to Pallium India on a regular basis by the P Subramaniam Foundation (The late P Subramaniam was the founder of Sree Padmanabha).
