TALENTED sisters are encouraging others to tread the boards to raise money for a new church hall.

Kirsty, 11, and Lucy-Anne Hickey, nine, have organised a children's musical variety show to raise money for the new hall at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, in Cliffsea Grove, Leigh.

They hope to contribute towards the £1million needed to construct the new building.

The show will be held on Saturday, November 3, at Our Lady of Lourdes School, which Kirsty used to attend before she gained a place in the Sylvia Young Theatre School In London. Lucy-Anne still attends the school.

Tickets can be bought from Jan Lewis on 01702 478105. Any company which wants to advertise in the programme can call Mrs Lewis on the same number.
