Variety Show raises more than £2000 for Essaman United, our Partner School in Ghana.
Music, dance, magic, acrobatics, and some unique comedy acts were all on the programme at this year’s eagerly anticipated Kimbolton Presents… Our popular annual variety show, organised by the Charities Committee, showcased the talents of pupils and staff, while raising much-needed funds towards the construction of further educational facilities at Essaman United, our partnership school in Ghana.
Performers at this year's fun-packed evening of entertainment included: Eve Foley singing Skyfall; Finley Peake playing Jazz Piano; Mean Girls featuring Rhianna Haresign, Millie Kenyon, Claudia Pert and Miranda Poulter; Emily Sparkes' 'Cool KIds' tap dancing; and Ben Hallam singing You’ve Got Something I Need. Performances were interspersed with clips of staff giving Gogglebox style reviews!
All proceeds from the show – currently standing at almost £2,200 – will be used to fund further building work and the development of educational facilities at Essaman United. Our partnership with the Ghanaian school is now in its seventh year and has to date raised enough funds to build a library and an IT room. There are now plans to build a new teaching space, enabling even more local children to receive an education, as well as a football pitch to benefit the whole community.
Don't miss the Charities Committee’s final festive fund-raiser of the term, a Christmas Jumper morning on Thursday 15 December. All funds raised will go towards Save the Children's humanitarian effort in Yemen.
