NUMBER 10 Downing Street will be the last stop for the Destiny Africa Children's choir before their tour ends and they return to Uganda next week.

The children who have all been rescued from horrific situations in East Africa will play their impressive live performance in front of the Prime Minister Gordon Brown on November 25.

Their impressive tour, managed by Solihull resident Ruth Coleman, started in Shirley at the beginning of October.

A children's centre has been set up in the country's capital, Kampala, which rescues the innocent youngsters who are trapped in a world of abuse, despair and poverty. Already seven houses are complete and more than 70 children have been rescued and live at KCC.

But the project is not standing still and they have broad aims to provide happy homes and education to at least 1,000 children from war ravaged villages in northern Uganda.

Some of those transformed youths have been performing up and down the country with a lively mix of modern and traditional African songs and dances.

During their visit to the UK they have visited places such as Old Trafford and the City of Manchester Stadium and have performed at various churches and schools including The Bridge on Stratford Road.

They will be performing at Woodrush High School in Hollywood tonight with tickets, costing £5, available from Kay Parker on 07816 005784 or visit www.kampalachildren.com.
