Blind Date meets Mamma Mia
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.
