During the evening we are also raising money for two wonderful local charities, as we feel it is important to support those near to us as well as across the world. Helen and Douglas House (www.helenanddouglas.org.uk) and Child Bereavement UK (www.childbereavementuk.org) both provide essential support and care for families and children in need. There will be a raffle, with many fabulous prizes donated by local businesses and refreshments (also kindly donated) during the interval.
"Typhoon Haiyan was 300 miles across when it struck the Philippines on the 8th of November 2013 and one of the most intense tropical storms to ever make landfall anywhere in the world. It brought torrential rain, sustained winds of over 195mph and a storm surge of up to 30 feet that devastated coastal areas.
There are millions of people who have been affected, including hundreds of thousands who have been forced from their homes. There are countless dead. Those who have survived now need urgent help including emergency shelter, clean water and food." (information Taken from Disasters Emergency Committee website: Jan 2014)
Including performances by students from: Kobika Dance, Pauline Quirke Academy, Anna Rose Dance School, choral performances by The Blend Choir and Wycombe Orpheus Cygnets Choir, plus 4 piece vocal harmony group The Lacettes and various solo performers - an exciting mix of talent from youngsters to adults!
Tickets just £5 each - all proceeds from the sale of the tickets given to the DEC to help people directly in the Philippines rebuild their lives.
Many thanks to Cressex Community School for providing us with a fantastic venue in which to host our show!
