Bonnie Langford's NOW: Charity Benefit Through Ambrosia

At Gallifrey 2001, we bought a large stock of CD's and souvenir programs from Bonnie Langford's one-woman show, "Now," as featured at right. Bonnie's new album features selections from her one woman show; it consists of her own personal tribute to some of her own sensational tribute to some of her favourite musical stars and shows - Magical showstoppers from "Cats", "Little Shop of Horrors", "Funny Girl", "Sweet Charity", ... plus her red hot favourites from the world of jazz, soul, rhythm and blues and just a little bit of rock and roll! Some of these were performed live at the Gallifrey 2001 convention... but many more selections were not! Through a special arrangement with Bonnie Langford and her husband, Paul Grunert (simply, two of the nicest people we've ever had the pleasure of meeting), we have arranged to donate part of the proceeds of each and every "Now" CD and programme sold to Bonnie's charity, the CdLS Foundation. CdLS people have both physical & mental disabilities, all have learning difficulties to some degree. Communication is a major problem for CdLS people many have problems speaking & use sign language to communicate, whilst those who can speak are shy & have difficulties in being understood. One thing many of the children have in common is a love of music. "Parents have told me that their children relax and really enjoy music. Music therapists have had a lot of success with CdLS people," says Bonnie. As part of her support for the CdLS Foundation, Bonnie & her management have agreed to make a contribution from each copy of the souvenir programmes sold at her performances and on her website... and now, your support through Ambrosia helps too! For more information on the CdLS Foundation, you can visit www.cdlsoutreach.org. These items are available until they're gone! Order one today!
