A young group of fundraisers in Grimsby will take the stage at the Warehouse on Freeman Street in Grimsby on Friday night to raise money for St Andrew’s Hospice.

It’s Showtime is a special event that will showcase the best in local, young talent with all proceeds raised going to St Andrew’s.

The event has been organised by Tomas Cook, a Cleethorpes Academy pupil who helped out with fundraising during the summer.

“I wanted to help a local charity and I had previously helped out at some other events,” said Tomas.

“I have also always wanted to put on a talent show for local acts, so it seemed like a good idea to put the two together.

“I have been performing since I was four years old and I love everything about it.

“It helps build skills in music, acting and musical theatre.”

Tomas is a member of the theatre group CAST and has performed at the Grimsby Auditorium in popular musicals, such as ‘Oliver’ and ‘Annie’.

Just last month he performed the role of Zac in the musical ‘Goosebumps’ at Grimsby Central Hall.

Some of the acts confirmed for the show include indie groups Common Faults and Pranyama, as well as J.A.D.E Dancefever.

Tomas said: “We hope to raise as much money as possible for the hospice so they can buy necessary equipment for patients.

“I am grateful to all the bands who have supported the event by performing for free.”

Hospice representative Theresa Crowe is looking forward to a night of fabulous fundraising and exciting entertainment.

She said: “I was approached by Tomas earlier in the year, he wanted to get involved in fundraising for St Andrew’s Hospice.

“Tomas has supported at events and this gave him an insight into what we do and who we are.

“Then he wanted to do something bigger that he could use his skills in theatre and dance.

“He came up with the idea of a show involving local young people bands, singers and dance acts to raise vital funds for the hospice.

“Tomas has organised this event at the Warehouse and he has worked so hard putting it together.

“He is an amazing young person and undertaking planning and organising this event will give him skills for life and help him in the future with whatever he chooses to do.

“I wish him the best of luck with the show and welcome him on board as a young fundraiser.”

Doing fundraisers for St Andrew’s Hospice can be extremely creative. There are many ways that you can support the hospice.
