LAST week the Dynamic Body Studio-owner and Pilates instructor, Vicky Luff, held a show in honour of her birthday.
The show was aimed at raising funds for her son Kaylib and his tour to the UK with Stirling Primary.
Despite a power failure minutes before the show was scheduled to start, it was a success as performers strutted their stuff on the Art’s Theatre’s stage and entertained audiences.
“ I was in a panic when the lights went out, but everyone calmly put their cell phone lights on, ate their snacks and waited patiently,” said Luff.
The show started with about 20 minutes delay, but nothing could dampen the happy and entertaining atmosphere of the night.
Luff received an out pour of love and support from the East London community and managed to raise R9500.
10% of the proceeds from the night will be donated to the Down Syndrome Association, whereas the rest will go towards Kaylib’s trip to the UK.
“I am so grateful to everyone who supported me, it was such a wonderful birthday and I’m so glad the evening was fun for everyone,” said Luff.
“I’d like to challenge others to pay it forward and think out of the box to help others. Its amazing what can be achieved when people come together to bless those around them.”
