A TEENAGE variety show is set to raise funds for a hospice which offers care and support for ill children.

Show ‘Em What We’re Made Of is a variety show with a programme including all styles of dance, singing, comedy and acrobatics.

The teenage boys and girls performing in the show are all under the tuition of Amy Horsley, who organised the event after becoming ill herself.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Rainbows Hospice.

Miss Horsley said: “My reason for choosing this particular charity is that myself and a couple of the teenagers I am working with have been effected by an illness where we have needed specialist help and support and we would just like to give something back.

“The exceptional care and support that the children and their families receive from this charity has inspired me to raise money to give something back and to say thank you for their support in such difficult times.

“I am looking for any kind of support great or small that will help raise a target figure of £1,000 to £2,500 for Rainbows Children’s Hospice.”

The variety show is at the Anthony Gell School in Wirksworth on Friday, February 8 and Saturday 9 from 6pm.

Tickets for the event are £5 and are available from Anthony Gell School Reception, Tradelinks in Wirksworth and the Rainbows Charity Shop in Matlock and more information is available by telephoning Amy on 07815443447.
