On Friday 13 March, talented students at Abbey Gate College raised £1,250 for Crossroads Together, a registered charity dedicated to providing information, advice and practical support to unpaid carers of all ages and the people they care for.

The annual variety show, organised by the students and hosted at the Senior School in Saighton, featured comedy, singers, dancers and instrumentalists who gave passionate performances to an audience of family and friends.

The show is about inclusivity, so everyone who was interested got to join in, whether that involved performing on stage or working behind the scenes.

During the evening of entertainment, acts included a performance of ‘The Flower Duet’ by Izzy Downs and Sophie Lewis-Jones, gymnastics by Kiri Kilgannon, a comedy sketch by Alex Garcia and even a song from teaching staff! Many of the performers amazed the crowd with their hidden talent.

Earlier, students did some additional fundraising by holding a non-uniform day, dressing up instead in 80’s clothing, organising games at lunchtime and showing a classic 80’s film in the theatre.
