Pupils from Cundall Manor School produced an evening of drama and music with a difference, helping other young people as part of Children in Need.
Pupils as young as NINE took to the stage on Wednesday 16 November to perform as part of efforts to raise money for the annual BBC appeal.
The evening of entertainment was organised by pupils from the school, with Henry Calvert directing the show which included exerts from ‘Charlie and The Chocolate Factory’ and a short piece from the uplifting play ‘Unicorns and Alleycats.’
Music was performed by pupils with a wide array of instruments and singing taking place.
14-year-old Henry last organised a show for Children in Need two years ago.
He said: “I have been raising money for children in need for the past 7 years and each year I have tried to make it bigger and better.” This year Henry and his friends have raised £513.54.
“Children in Need is a great cause. We tried the show format two years ago and it went really well. The show was a great success and all the acts performed brilliantly.”
He added: “Thank you to everyone who attended and performed.”
Outside the show, children from the school came in non-uniform for the day and have so far raised in excess of £300. A huge well done to everyone for supporting a great cause.
