This week, ten students from Jesus College joined forces with forty local children and a few other helpers in Rotherham to put on a musical in five days.  The project has taken place every summer for the past five years, with the aim being to offer some joy to local children who may not have many other opportunities over the summer break.   The students were generously hosted by Abi and the team, and fortified throughout the week with copious amounts of delicious cake.

This year the production was “Alice in Wonderland”, which called for many wacky costumes and a colourful set to be made.  The children and students had a fantastic time alike, with each person finding their moment to shine.  Long after the music finally stops, there will be many happy memories, and we hope the project will continue for another five years.
