A capacity audience enjoyed a wonderful evening of entertainment, provided by local homegrown talent of all ages. A truly delightful evening, and lots of fun.

All money raised from the event will be going to 'Path to Africa', a charity supported by Hannah Bourke who, sadly, died recently (aged 19) following an epileptic fit. The evening was held in her memory.

Path to Africa (PTA) aims to give direct help to local small-scale organisations in Moshi town, northern Tanzania. Currently, PTA has undertaken to construct the Corner Stone Children's Centre, in connection with local organisation Tanzania Children's Concern, to provide access to quality education and a safe living environment to a number of orphaned or vulnerable children.
