ReFresh: A Night at the Musicals
Charity/Fundraising Night full of all your favourite musical songs! Come support us as we are raising money for the charity CHAS and for our future society events. Come watch our very talented society members performing songs alongside a pianist!
We are holding this charity night in support of the charity CHAS, CHAS is a charity that is very near and dear to the hearts of many people including some members of this society as they have helped some family members and friends through some of their hardest times!
CHAS, Children's Hospices across Scotland, for over 20 years have been offering a full family support for babies, children and young people with life shortening conditions. They're commited to making sure that no matter how short their time together may be, it is a time filled with happiness and fun. They help out families whether this may be at home, in the hospital or at one of the two hospices they currently have open- Robin and Rachel House. They offer a range of different supports for these families including medical care, specialist care and end of life care, and they also offer emotional support whether this be through spiritual care, counselling and bereavement support. They're there for the whole family, and are willing to help each person as much as they can.
We have chosen to support and fundraise for this charity as they helped out a very close friend when she was going through one of the worst points in her life, and we cannot thank Robin House enough for all the support that they gave to my friends during this difficult time! This charity night will be held in memory of my friends son JJ Garvie, who was born still-born on the 16th of May 2018. JJ had a condition called Anencephaly, which is the absence of a major portion of the brain, skull, and scalp that occurs during embryonic development. It is a cephalic disorder that results from a neural tube defect that occurs when the rostral (head) end of the neural tube fails to close. Unfortunately there is currently no cure for Anencephaly and not many anencephaly babies make it all the way through the pregnancy. By supporting charities like CHAS, we are ensuring that more families who have to go through the heartache of these conditions are supported through the toughest times in their lives by these people who support and help them every step of the way!
We hope you can come and support us at this charity night so that we can make as big of a donation to CHAS as we can! and if you cannot make this charity night, keep an eye out as we will be doing lots of fundraising throughout the year for this charity too!
