DESTINY AFRICA CHILDREN'S CHOIR VISIT WHEATFIELDS!
25th April 2016
We were delighted to be able to welcome the Destiny Africa Children's Choir to Wheatfields on Tuesday 12 April. Destiny Africa is the choir from Kampala Children's Centre, Uganda. Through music, dance and art the choir perform to audiences across the world sharing their story of hope and changed lives. Mrs Forrest and her kitchen staff prepared a lovely dinner for the choir and were rewarded with a song to say thank you!
In the evening we hosted a concert in which the choir performed traditional African singing, dancing and drumming as well as songs they had written themselves. They had several exciting costume changes and everyone enjoyed the energy and happiness of the children. Some of our children attended a workshop in the afternoon and were lucky enough to perform with the choir in the evening! The Mayor, Councillor Ian Jackson, attended the concert and clearly enjoyed himself!
The choir also shared their stories and explained the wonderful work which is being done to transform such vulnerable and young lives.
Through ticket sales, donations and sponsorship, Wheatfields raised £576.00 - this is a fantastic amount, thank you to everyone who contributed!!
The money will go towards their solar project: to put solar lights in every room at the Kampala Children's Centre, Uganda, as well as provide solar energy for their new medical centre and to furnish their new secondary school building with everything from desks and chairs to a new science laboratory.
