Saffron Walden youngsters sing and dance for charity
A GROUP of RA Butler Junior School children held a sing and dance performance in aid of two charities close to their hearts.
Gracie, Jasmine, Evie, Ollie and Josh had approached headteacher Gayle Mawson to see whether they were able to manage the event and hold it in the school hall.
The children spent more than six months planning and rehearsing their show and delivered it in front of an excited audience of children, parents and teachers. They sung hits from Lady Gaga, Robbie Williams and many more.
They sold handmade tickets and had a collection on the day.
They were delighted to raise a total of �100, which they will be sharing out between their chosen charities – CICRA (Crohn’s in Childhood Research Association) and Cancer Research UK.
Mrs Mawson said: “It’s wonderful to see such a group of determined and self-motivated children.
“They worked tirelessly to organise this show and delivered a superb performance.”
