ABBA Tribute Show raises almost £4,000 for Meru!

SI Canterbury put on a phenomenal ABBA tribute show at the Marlowe Theatre on Monday 11th July and raised around £4,000 for Meru Women's Garden Project.

SI Canterbury stated that the one night show was "nearly a sell out with only a few unsold seats when the curtain went up". 

ABBA look-a-likes took to the stage and performed all of the classic hits that the group is well known for with around 1,150 people singing and dancing along to Mama Mia, Dancing Queen, Waterloo and plenty more!

The night was a huge success and "The Marlowe Theatre kindly offered to donate all profits from the show, a whopping £7,052.24 and in addition we collected over £820 at the doors as the audience exited the theatre". 

The money raised for Meru Women's Garden Project will go a long way to improve the lives of women and children who benefit from the project. We want to say a huge thank you to SI Canterbury for their hard work, creative fundraising and most of all for putting on a fantastic evening for the people of Canterbury. 

SI Canterbury have said "THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC, and for the generosity of the Marlowe Theatre and the wonderful audience who came to the show and dropped money into our buckets as they left. It was a wonderful and worthwhile night!!!".
