An evening of Indian music and contemporary dance will help a Black Country based international charity to help improve the lives of children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Disabilities.
Hope and Compassion, based in Wolverhampton, will be hosting the evening at Wolverhampton Grammar School, Compton Road, on Friday, 27th April, from 5.30pm to 9pm.
It will help them continue work they have been doing taking latest techniques and therapies to work with children with special needs in developing countries.
Organiser Manpreet Kaur said: “We are a UK based charity that have projects both here and abroad, our main aim is to make a difference to the children and their families who have little or no understanding in the area of Special Needs. This evening of music and dance will bring amazing artists and the local community together. With the continuous support from Wolverhampton Grammar School we hope to bring new audiences to share our work and build new relationships.”
