Didcot Civic Centre make a song and a dance for bibic
Didcot Civic Hall decided that a cultural event would be a great way to bring the community together and learn about different cultures while raising money for charity.
This event was organised by Chelsey Lordan, who decided the money raised should go to bibic as the idea of sponsoring a child for a year was appealing. The event and subsequent donations raised £120 and so the team will be sponsoring Mia as part of our Sponsor a UK child scheme.
Chelsey went on to say “We hoped we could keep the donations going for our Culture and Community Day in Summer 2020 but that had to be cancelled due to COVID19. We had great fun though learning to play African drums and enjoying food from around the world”.
On the day there were multiple performances and workshops available such as Bavarian yodelling workshop, Indian dance and face paints. There were performances from The Crimps a local band and singer Maya who, along with Lynne Butler the Yodeller, took to the stage together for an impromptu collaboration performance.
Pictured are Musicians The Crimps, Maya and Lynne Butler performing together and Casey and Chelsey with face paints on and a video of an African Drumming lesson taking part on the day.
bibic fundraiser Andy Hirst says ” This is lovely way to raise cultural awareness as well as funds for bibic. We are also so delighted that they have specifically decided to use the funds to Sponsor A UK Child, in this case Mia”.
