Christmas show raises hundreds for charities

A team of adult learners presented hundreds of pounds to charities after an incredibly successful Christmas show.

Students and staff from the Adult Learning Alliance hosted their annual show back in December 2016 to celebrate the festive season, which over 200 people attended.

On the back of the show’s success, the group managed to raise over £1000 to give to three of their selected charities. They chose Make Christmas Special, NHS Tynesight and Marie Curie.

And earlier this week, four learners from the Adult Learning Disability drama group visited Norham Community Wing to present representatives from NHS Tynesight and Marie Curie with the money personally.

Elected Mayor Norma Redfearn was also in attendance and was impressed with the group’s endeavours.

She said: “I was absolutely delighted to be a part of this presentation and would like to congratulate everyone involved in this fantastic effort.

“They have raised a lot of money for these excellent charities and everyone is very grateful for their hard work.”

The North Tyneside Council Adult Learning Alliance looks to provide the highest quality teaching available to adults in the borough.
