Talent night for Nepal trip

An open mic event takes place next month to raise funds for Cheshire Fire Cadets’ expedition to Nepal later this year.

Among the 16-strong group will be Hannah Ford, who is in year 10 at Tarporley High School, and is a member of Tarporley Fire Cadets who meet every Tuesday at the village fire station.

The group need to raise over £70,000, which will fund the building of a new school and enable the team to go to Nepal and finish off the build where they will also meet and work with the children and villagers who will be using the facilities for generations to come.

Two years on from the first earthquake in Nepal, children are still living and studying under tarpaulins, so it’s important that the cadets raise the money to enable them.

The trip to Nepal will take Hannah out of her comfort zone and into a place where she will need to push herself, trekking on foot through the Himalayas before getting to work on the school.

Hannah will be running lots of independent fundraisers over the coming months to hopefully raise sponsorship cash.

The open mic night takes place at Tarporley Community Centre on Saturday 18th March from 7pm. After the initial 2.5 hour open mic session, there will be homemade curry and beers/wine on sale followed by an evening’s entertainment of live music from the local band Spitting Feathers. Tickets are £5 and proceeds go to the Nepal School Project 2017.

On the night there are three independent judges, including one from a local music and media company and a second from the recording studio who have donated 1st prize of two hour recording session at their studios.

Tickets available on the door or available in Swaffields, Tarporley.
