The Carmichael School of Dance and Theatre Arts in Telford recently held their biannual dance show and raised an amazing £900 to support older people in Shropshire.
The show was a huge success with 150 children and 50 teachers and helpers attending. It provides an opportunity for its students to perform on stage and each year principal Nicola Carmichael-Phillips uses this opportunity to raise funds for charity, this year’s being Age UK; she says, ” I thank Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin for supporting my parents during a difficult time but also for helping the families of people that come through our school.”
Nicola believes it is important for children to get involved with fundraising as it teaches them to appreciate what they have and to recognise they have the ability, even from a young age, to help others.
