Mamma Mia raises £500 for local children's charity

A CHARITY screening of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again at the Spa Centre in Leamington has raised £500 for a local children’s charity.

Organised by Leamington Spa Rotary Club, the audience was invited to sing and dance along to the songs and enjoy the chance to dress up as their favourite film character or member of the group.

Rotarian Lisa Devine, who arranged the event, made the cheque presentation to Cheryll Rawbone of The Friendship Project for Children, which matches children who are in need – for a variety of reasons – with adult volunteers for friendship and fun. Founded in 1986, the charity has helped more than 1,000 children throughout the county.

According to the charity, for some children, even playing in a park or going into a cinema is a rare treat. The children may be caring for a sick parent or be limited to where they can go on holiday because of a disabled sibling or other family member. Having some time out from often difficult home situations can really improve their self-esteem and self-worth.
