Jack Gittins, 14yrs, attends Enderby’s Brockington College. He has organised the event, being staged at the College from 7pm on Friday 22nd April, to help him raise funding in order to take part in the College’s ‘Kash 4 Kenya’ project.
Along with other students, Jack had the opportunity to take part in the project and travel to South Africa this July and after a series of interviews he was accepted. It was only then that the hard work began!
Bi-annual projects since 2010, have helped support the schools and the students by:
- buying land and carrying out building work to provide a safe and practical learning environment for the student
- supplying desks and benches, along with appropriate stationary and resources so students can advance their education as they desperately want to
- purchasing mosquito nets to help but down the spread of malaria and provide a safe nights sleep
- supplying food packages to those in real need
installing water tanks
and much more
To take part each successful student has to raise £2000 to enable the trip to take place.
Jack has already raised £900 by climbing Snowdon and a further £235 through holding a coffee morning with stall at Blaby Congregational Church.
Star guest is ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, a finalist from Britain’s Got Talent 2013 who wowed the studio audience with his Simon Cowell and Sinita puppets (see a YouTube video here).
Supporting Steve are local singer and comedian Neil Warner and local teen-age band ‘Fallacy’ (in which Jack plays guitar). There is a bar on the night and there will also be a raffle.
All tickets for the show are a snip at £5 and are available from:
