What a fabulous show at Joseph Rowntree Theatre. I am so proud of each and everyone of you! Many thanks to all who helped especially the dressers for your patience. The children/dancers were all amazing and you have all worked so hard. We raised £2,219.22 for Ralph Butterfield school, whom were thrilled by the amount raised for an enhanced garden area for children to play. I am feeling so proud, of our amazing, talented and happy children. Well done all.
