PORTRUSH is set to host a fundraiser for a great cause this Saturday night.
Let’s Dance for Barefeet, will take place at the Magherabuoy House Hotel this Saturday, May 14.
Adam McGuigan a local man set up Barefeet, a charity based in Zambia several years ago.
Adam started his work in South Africa before moving on to Zambia. There he met with street children who hadn’t even shoes on their feet.
There were centres all over Lusaka set up by various Christian organisations to feed the children and give them medical care, but no-one was really engaging with them.
Most of the children were addicted to glue sniffing and had a pretty hopeless life and future.
Adam, with others began rounding up the kids and bringing them to the centres to engage them in theatre workshops. Out of this the charity was born and five years on Adam is still living there, having given up his own very promising career to care for them.
This Saturday, dancers will go head to head in a bid to become ‘Let’s Dance’ champion whilst at the same time raising money for Adam’s charity.
Already on the line up is Rosanna Morelli and her McHooligans and Jive-King Terry O’Neill, Joanna Martin and Maeve O Hara.
Brian Moore will compere the night, he’ll also be getting behind the decks after the competition for the disco.
Tickets cost £15 including supper, they can be purchased from the Magherabuoy, Inspirations, Portstewart; EJ Cassells, Main Street, Ballymoney or by contacting Anne on 07821817449.
