CATHCART Trinity church has added an extra date following huge demand for its charity night taking place this week.
Girls’ Night Out – organised by Cathcart Trinity, Cathcart Baptist, Cathcart United Free and Netherauldhouse churches – will now run across two nights, on April 18 and 19.
The celebrity-hosted evening is in aid of international children’s charity World Vision UK, which funds development of education and AIDs awareness in Africa.
Taking to the stage are Pop Idol contestant and One Show presenter Carrie Grant, as well as stand up comedian Jo Enright – both of whom have recently returned from a World Vision trip to Uganda.
There, Jo met the child she sponsors, 11-year-old Musa.
She explained: “Thanks to the projects World Vision has set up, Musa and other children in his community have now got access to better education and are learning how to protect themselves against some of the most serious types of harm, like child abuse and child labour.
“I hope the stories we tell during Girls’ Night Out will inspire women to help children like Musa.”
The subject matter may be serious, but event organiser Karen Gurling, of Cathcart Baptist church, promises plenty of entertainment at the girls-only night too.
She added: “We’re so pleased to see how much excitement there is for it in Cathcart, and everyone who has a ticket is guaranteed a fun night out that will inspire them as well as entertain them.”
Ticket holders can look forward to complimentary drinks and treats during the interval, as well as goodie bags to take home, courtesy of Cadburys and other sponsors.
For those of you who still need a ticket, they’re £7 on the door, or £5 in advance plus booking fee from www.ticketline.co.uk, or 07504835658.
