All funds raised will be donated to the Bradford Lord Mayor's Appeal which this year is supporting the Down Syndrome Training and Support Service Ltd and The Wishing Well Appeal (which will be a pot of money to be shared across a number of charities in the distict)

Abbi Uttley of Issimo said

We get asked to support charity events all the time and the same charities seem to get a lot of publicity and fundraising.

Down Syndrome Training and Support is a small valuable charity working with parents of Down Syndrome.

Our Down Syndrome fans are always to the first on the dance floor at our gigs, with a passion for music and life that is uplifting and inspiring, and I have seen some of the best young ballet dancers at Haycliffe School with Down syndrome.

With the right education and support for parents of children with the condition Children with Down Syndrome can blossom into happy, caring and positive adults that achieve so much.

That’s why we are proud to support the charity and hope many people turn out to the fundraiser, to spread awareness about the help that is on offer.”

Tickets cost just £12 each for a great night of music, song and dance. Not to be missed.

A supper of vegetarian chilli or non-veggie curry is also available for an additional cost of £6 per head. Payable in advance.
