Chil­dren tread boards to raise hospice cash

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - COUNTRYFILE -

CHIL­DREN raised money for sick young­sters by do­nat­ing the pro­ceeds of their dance show to a hospice. Ash­ford School of Bal­let pre­sented a cheque for £150 to Demelza House this week. The money was raised through their show My Favourite Things which the dancers, aged be­tween three and 15, per­formed for par­ents last month. Deb­bie Pat­ter­son, who runs the group, said: “The money was from re­fresh­ments and pro­grammes but there will be more to come when we sell the DVD and pho­to­graphs. “The show was a col­lec­tion of mu­sic from stage and film. “It was a huge hit and the chil­dren had a mar­vel­lous time. “They had a full un­der­stand­ing of what they were do­ing the show for.”
