EUROVISION winner Dana is set for all kinds of surprises next month thanks to a Padiham school.

The Irish singer will be serenaded by the choir of St Leonard's Church of England Primary when she opens an event in Manchester on March 13.

The children have rewritten and rehearsed her 1970 contest-winning song All Kinds of Everything for her visit to the Christian Resources Exhibition at Event City.

The new version is tailored to the theme of the two-day event outlining its benefits and items on show.

It will have the chorus line - 'All kinds of everything for your church and you'.

The 40-strong choir has been practising for some time to conquer the unusual words and phrases to highlight products as diverse as pulpits, puppets, sound systems and software.

St Leonard's School music co-ordinator Suzanna Halsey said: "They are thoroughly enjoying it and seem to be able to cope with the more awkward words.

"The children seem to relish the challenge of the new song and are looking forward to the occasion.

"It is good to have the opportunity to perform in public, particularly as Dana will be there listening.

"We hope that she likes the version we are singing and that it brings back happy memories of her Eurovision win in 1970 when she herself was still a schoolgirl."

The exhibition in Manchester has been welcomed by the Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu.

He said: "CRE is an event that brings together churches from many different traditions and persuasions.

"It is an ideal place for positive discussion and agenda setting."
