Talented Abbey College students raise money for charity
Students at Abbey College Manchester recently showcased an exceptional array of talent at their winter concert.
The city centre-based college held the annual show at the Unitarian Chapel on Cross Street, in aid of local charity, Mustard Tree.
The Mustard Tree is committed to transforming the lives of those living in Greater Manchester who are trapped in homelessness or poverty. The charity works to help the individuals to gain the skills that they need to reach their full potential.
During the evening, the chapel was awash with an abundance of singing, dancing and instrumental performances which entertained family and friends. The spectacular event displayed a high level of gift and saw the students raise £200 for the selected charity.
A Level student Lara O’Donoghue, gave a duo of impressive performances, one of which was a beautiful rendition of ‘Blue Christmas’ accompanied by two fellow students, one on the piano and saxophone, and another on the guitar.
Principal Liz Elam commented: “The Winter Concert is the perfect opportunity for the students to showcase their musical creativity in front of their friends and family, and it is a great way to raise money for a good cause.”

There are around 210 students at the college, comprising a mix of students from the local area and other countries. The college offers A-Level, GCSE, Combined Studies and International Foundation Programmes.
