Entertainer to perform at Olympic closing ceremony
AN ENTERTAINER who regularly performs in Cookham and south Bucks is set to star in the Olympic closing ceremony.
While many may dread the end to the sporting spectacle Sarah Chakaveh, 21, who works for Sima’s Action Kids is excitedly looking forward to it.
The closing ceremony takes place on Sunday night at the Olympic stadium in Stratford.
Sarah, from Maidenhead, a journalism graduate, said:"The 2012 Olympics have made the whole country proud, and have made us all realise how much we have to offer as a country and I can’t wait until Sunday."
Sima Stannage, founder of Sima’s Action Kids, is Sarah's aunt.
She said: "My family and I are so proud of Sarah and I am sure she will do a great job on Sunday.
"Sarah’s very dedicated at whatever she does - she started rehearsing for this back in April. I am sure all the hard work will pay off. She’s been sworn to secrecy so Sunday is going to be a surprise for me too."
Anyone who misses Sarah's performance at the Olympic ceremony can see her dancing at Cookham's second Big Friday Chill at the Crown pub on August 17 from 3.30pm. For more event details call the Crown on 01628 520163
