Ghananian Night - 1

Home » News » Ghananian Night - 1

Our first Ghanaian Night was held in the church last Saturday, followed by a Ghanaian meal in the hall. Proceeds went to The Alfan Foundation and Karibuni Children. The Alfan foundation supports schools, orphanages and the disabled in Ghana, as explained by co-founder Alfons Hanson. Karibuni Children transforms the lives of children in the streets and slums of areas of urban and rural poverty in Kenya as we were reminded by Trustee of the charity Joy Murphy.

The evening's entertainment was provided by The Ghanaian Drumming Group, The Anuket Belly Dancers and a duet by Shirley Francis on Saxophone and Julie Maguuire on piano. The duo fooled the audience with a discordant start that led into the classic Morecambe and Wise line about 'playing all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order'! The Belly Dancers performed five well rehearsed numbers and the entertainment closed with Ghanaian Highlife music accompanied by dancing by the whole Ghanaian contingent and many of their audience.
