Westwoodhill Evangelical Church to host new-look charity event
On Friday 11th September 2015, Westwoodhill Evangelical Church, East Kilbride welcomes a celebrity event, exclusively for women, from international children’s charity World Vision UK.
The aptly-named Girls’ Night Out is fronted by vocal coach to the stars Carrie Grant, who shot to fame on TV talent show Pop Idol and is a regular presenter on The One Show. Girls’ Night Out also features a stand-up set from female comic Jo Enright, who appeared in Phoenix Nights and the recent Ricky Gervais sit-com Life’s Too Short among other things
The event, hosted by Westwoodhill Evangelical Church, East Kilbride invites women of all ages to be entertained, treated and inspired. Every woman receives a goodie bag to take home, and complimentary drinks and treats are served on the night.
The show in East Kilbride is a chance for Carrie and Jo to talk about their recent visit to Uganda, to see World Vision’s work.
“This was my second trip with World Vision but I was still shocked by how tough life can be for some people.
“We met one woman who had been abused by both her father and her first husband, before contracting HIV from the second man she married.
“Luckily World Vision is working in her community to help people with the illness access better healthcare and find new, sustainable ways to earn a living.”
For Jo, the highlight of the trip was meeting her 11-year-old sponsored child, Musa.
“It was great to see first-hand how my sponsorship is benefiting real people.
“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, in some of the world’s hardest places.”
World Vision’s development projects started in Uganda in 1986. The funds from Child Sponsorship are being used to benefit whole communities, with projects to help children access quality education; opportunities for children to find out about their rights and chances for people with HIV and Aids to access better healthcare and work opportunities.
