Students and staff at Abbey College Manchester took to the stage to raise vital funds for Wood Street Mission, a charity which assists children and families living on a low income in Manchester and Salford.
During the spectacular evening, guests were treated to highly talented singing and instrumental performances at the Unitarian Chapel on Cross Street.
Assistant principal, Chris Randell, gave an impressive performance with his version of ‘For Me Formidable’ by Charles Aznavor, and then both he and principal, Liz Elam, performed a fantastic duet to the Fats Waller song ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’.Talented Abbey College Manchester Student Showcases Talents for Charity
Notable performances include Sabri Cary (18) from Warrington who delighted the audience with a heart-felt solo, and Nguyen Nhu Quynh Bui (15) from Middleton who gave an exceptional guitar rendition as well as a very well-received solo vocal piece.
Liz Elam told us: “As always it was a wonderful, joyous occasion filled with laughter and fun, helping to strengthen our college community even more. It was a great opportunity for both students and staff members to showcase their incredible creativity while raising money for a very good cause.
A special mention must also go to Assistant Head of House, Jonathan Syson, who compered the evening brilliantly as well as Jayne Hayes and Vicki Dawson who organised the refreshments.”
