The Smiles Foundation Roadshow

International Gospel Artist, Nia - now based in Gorsley, is currently touring the UK raising awareness and funds for The Smiles Foundations projects in Romania, of which she is cofounder. The Tileagd School Choir from Romania will be joining her on this tour for the twenty eight dates. Until two years ago these children had not sat in a classroom and the majority could not read or write until the Smiles Foundation opened up a school for a gypsy village in Tileagd, just outside of Oradea. The community there had had no access to education for fifty years. The youngsters are joining NIA on The Smiles Foundation Roadshow to thank those who have supported the school and to help raise funds for the much needed larger school so that others can enjoy the opportunities that they are now getting. On the Roadshow the youngsters will be singing in three languages, Romny, Romanian & English.

On Saturday 8th October the Smiles Foundation Roadshow will be in Ross on Wye at The Baptist Church, supported by a number of area churches. The start time is 7.30 pm and tickets are 4 in advance (5 on the door), or a 12 family ticket (15 on the door). These are available locally from 01989-566966

The evening will be multimedia, with video footage of the youngsters in Romania and of the various projects that Smiles is involved in. Also on the night, there will be opportunity to enter a prize draw to win an all expenses paid Mission Trip to Romania - the draw will take place at the end of the Tour, with the trips later this year, or in 2006.
