‘This is the greatest show’ is the latest fundraising event organised by the Age UK North Shropshire Supporters Group to support local older people. Attendees enjoyed a night of singing and dancing to hits from the movie ‘The Greatest Showman’ with a chance to win prizes and enter the costume competition.

During the half time break, Chair of Age UK North Shropshire Supporters, Anne Wignall and Mark Spurdens, Treasurer presented a cheque of £4000 to Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin which was raised through various events in 2018.

A big thank you to Ellesmere College who played host to the sing-a-long and the generous support given by local businesses – The Black Lion and Lily the Pink. The event raised £1100, just one of many fundraising events the group have lined up for this year.

Anne Wignall said: “The event was a huge success and we thank everyone for coming and supporting us. It’s really rewarding for the group to organise these events and know the money raised goes back into our local community”.
