Dance shows to raise playground cash

Oxford Mail: Raw Diva Raw Diva

DANCERS strutted their stuff to raise money for playground equipment for disabled children.

Dance company Raw Diva, right, put on the charity show on Saturday to collect funds for Mabel Prichard School.

The Blackbird Leys school cares for children with physical and mental disabilities and wants to update its play equipment. It has been working to raise £20,000 for the project.

The two performances – a matinee and evening show – took place at the Old Fire Station Theatre in Oxford.

The idea came from dancer Lisa Clarke, a school teaching assistant.

Raw Diva founder Jen Middleton said the show was a success.

She said: “Both shows were sold out which we were really pleased with.”

Totals for how much the shows raised are still being calculated.
