Britain's Got Talent contestants will feature in a charity variety show organised by Hertswood Academy pupils.

The group of six Year 10 students organised the Fortitude event to raise money for Cancer Research, Macmillan and Peace Hospice Care.

Team member Jenna Ward said: “We were talking about charities and how it would be amazing to repay the charities that have helped us and the people close to us. It hasn't been easy at all but, we persevere because we are trying to raise as much money for three very special charities.

“We are all extremely excited and we're all looking forward to seeing how all of our hard work has turned out. We hope to see as many people there as possible.”

Fortitude will feature both music and comedy including Britain’s Got Talent’s Gabz and Callum Oakley, and a number of local performers.

The show will be held at the Ark Theatre on Friday, June 6, from 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the box office.
