Four charities to benefit from Bishop's Stortford High School Showcase
Staff and students at Bishop’s Stortford High School are staging their variety performance, Showcase, on Thursday and Friday evenings (Dec 13 and 14).
The event is a fundraiser for four community initiatives this Christmas. Ticket sales will benefit:
- Bishop’s Stortford Winter Night Shelter at Holy Trinity Church in South Street, which opened at the end of November;
- Bishop's Stortford Food Bank based at South Street’s Methodist Church; and
- Retune, an initiative partnering creativity with mental wellbeing pioneered by the Independent’s music writer, Tom Ryder, at The Horn and the Half Moon in North Street.
A raffle will be held in aid of the Welbeloved Club, the monthly Sunday lunch project for lonely pensioners, which is hosting a Christmas celebration this weekend. Independent readers have donated food, drink and gifts for the festive bash.
Teacher and organiser Simon Etheridge, who will be performing, said: “We wish to raise money for all sectors of our community through the show.”
Tickets cost £5 from the school and performances start at 7.30pm. For more details see http://www.tbshs.org
