Last Saturday the 13th April, over 130 senior citizens enjoyed a great cabaret show which also included an excellent afternoon tea. Whilst enjoying their excellent sandwiches, cakes and cups of tea, they were entertained with songs from Shirley Bassey, Frankie Valli from the the Greatest Showman to Les Miserables by the ‘Stomps’ Theatre Group.
With a great selection of raffle prizes on offer, they must have been having a wonderful afternoon because the total raised from this show was £800. The charities that this event were supporting are: Myton Hospice Coventry – Supported by Andrew Halliday (entertainer). British Heart Foundation, Diabetes UK. Cancer UK – supported by Tesco (Yardley Champion) Gina Howell. Clic Sargent – Supported by Morrisons (Sheldon Champion) Meloney Colivert. Teenage Cancer – Supported by Aldi (Sheldon Store manager) Ryan Murphy. PDSA – Supported by Sheldon Store – Linda Hupfield.
I would like to personally thank Morrisons, Tesco, Aldi and Farmfoods for all their donations. A special thank you to Ann Marie, Bar & Catering Manager at Sheldon Heath Social Club, plus all her staff for making the afternoon work so well. And last but not least, Andrew Halliday and his troupe of entertainers for a brilliant afternoon show.
