Blind Date meets Mamma Mia

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Countryfile -

TEENAGERS pre­par­ing for con­fir­ma­tion at Ash­ford’s St Teresa’s Catholic Church in May are rais­ing money for char­ity. Af­ter a lot of hard work on Satur­day the 23 12-and 13-year-olds put on a show in the school hall for fam­i­lies, friends and parish­ioners to raise money for the Pul­monary Heart As­so­ci­a­tion (PHA) and the Fa­ther An­thony Musalaa Ugan­dan youth group. PHA was cho­sen be­cause one of the girls has a sis­ter who needs a heart and lung trans­plant and they had al­ready raised money for Fr An­thony last year to help fund his work ed­u­cat­ing young peo­ple in Uganda and run­ning an or­phan­age in the bush. The show had an Abba theme with dance and song rou­tines to hits like Mamma Mia, Danc­ing Queen and Water­loo. Other rou­tines were based on Deal or No Deal and Blind Date. There was also a bal­let per­for­mance and mu­sic from a band called Vanilla Ra­dio, made up of ex-con­fir­ma­tion pupils. The evening raised £1,124.
