Charity Circus Success

2011-07-26 09:39:00

It was fun filled night to celebrate the first year of Kearsley Academy and a chance to raise money for our chosen charity, Cancer Research UK.

Dance Co-ordinator, Mrs Sarah Johnson organised the circus themed evening with a variety of acts including Kearsley Academy students and staff, local primary schools and professional artists. The headline act were winners Chris and Wes, from Sky 1 ‘Got to Dance’, who performed as well as cutting the ribbon to a balloon launch, which had pupils wishes for their future.

The night was a sell out show with the audience being thrilled with the professional standard of student performances. This is a culmination of successful events that have taken place during this Academic Year and we are looking forward to many more next year!

The running total is £1500, with more funding still to come from a non-uniform day on Friday 22nd in support of the Circus Event. The event gained full page coverage in the Thursday 28th July edition of The Bolton News.
