Sheffield students have laid on a night of dance and music, including English, Irish, Chinese, African, Indian performances to raise money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and made £586.82 donations during one night. The show also played host to international classical violinist and ghazal singer Kamalbir Singh Nandra.
Emma Hunt, Rachel Leigh Smith and Stacy Morris are third year events management students in Sheffield Hallam University. These girls have been preparing the show for weeks as part of the course and it was a huge success.
The show named Ki Himayat was in support of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. It’s a culture charity event of music and dancing involving many different cultural backgrounds from the communities of Sheffield.
All the performers did it without gaining profits. Angela Bann and Christine King, two Bollywood dancers performed on that night said:
“It’s a good charity to support and we want to encourage these students to do something for charity.”
The three girls said although they’ve met some difficulties during the process, hopefully they managed to solve that and made the show.
They expressed their huge thanks after the show to everyone who performed on the night, as well as people who came to the event and donated money.
“How generous you all were for donating your time and talent to such a fantastic cause! You absolutely made the event what it was!”
All the money raised from the event will go to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice to help disabled children.
