Pollyanna Hope, the ten year old amputee girl who inspired Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope, took to the stage in St Mary’s Church Luton on Saturday the 27th of June 2015.
She was proudly introduced by her big sister Sapphire and close friend of the family, Edie Wright. Sapphire and Edie told the audience about the background of Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope, the charity’s aims and achievements. Pollyanna then took her place behind the microphone and sang Castle on a Cloud from the musical Les Misérables. She surpassed all expectations, singing with poise and clarity and with a maturity beyond her ten years.
The concert also offered a variety of classical and pop songs by choir Peculi8 backed up by the Barton Voice Choir. It was organised by Mrs Rachel Maloy who leads Peculi8 and is Pollyanna’s singing teacher.
Mrs Maloy was unable to attend the concert as she gave birth earlier in the week, but the whole team of Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope would like to thank her for organising such a beautiful evening which raised over £570 for Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope – enough to provide seven child amputees with prosthetic legs; enabling them to walk again.
