A Bollywood themed night helped to raise twice the amount expected for children living on a city rubbish dump.

The highlight was a demonstration of Bollywood style dancing by Henna Soni from Preston Hindu Temple. There was also an Indian meal and an Asian wedding style photo booth at Sabden’s parish centre of St Michael and St John’s.

The night raised £2,570 and was organised by Meriel Woodward who hopes to raise around £40,000 towards projects to help children and families in Vijayawada, India. If you want to help or donate Meriel can be contacted through Facebook or by emailing
