Charity cabaret for Redditch Heart Safe
11:30am Monday 30th September 2013 in News
A SINGER from Redditch has teamed up with a few of her fellow performers to organise a charity cabaret night in the town.
Sophie Grogan has already had success with two charity shows of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ at the Palace Theatre, and now she’s turned her attention to local charity Redditch Heart Safe.
The charity was founded by local couple Robert and Maggie Underwood who lost their 16-year-old daughter Charlotte to Sudden Arhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) in 2010. It aims to have defibrillators installed in public locations around the town in case of sudden cardiac arrest.
Miss Grogan said: "I met Robert Underwood last year and was really touched by his dedication to Redditch Heart Safe; a charity that is dear to Robert and his family's hearts and decided to help raise money for them through my skills as a performer."
The show is called ‘Keep Calm and Cabaret’ and features 10 professional singers performing songs from the musicals and familiar pop hits.
Miss Grogan added: “It's a relaxed event that promises to have the audience laughing and joining in."
A spokesman for the charity said: “Redditch Heart Safe would like to thank Sophie Grogan and all of the cast of "I Dreamed A Dream" for their great support putting on what will be a wonderful cabaret evening of song for us and helping to raise much needed funds so we can continue to purchase life saving equipment namely defibrillators for our schools and communities and helping to save lives.”
‘Keep Calm and Cabaret’ is taking place on Saturday, October 5 at the Crown Green Suite in Headless Cross. Tickets are £5 on the door and there will also be a bar and raffle.
