School on stage at talent show

A MUSIC and dance talent showcase in aid of charity featured performers from Hucknall’s Holgate Comprehensive School.

The event was staged last weekend at Portland College on Mansfield Road near Mansfield.

It was in aid of the the Royal British Legion (RBL) as the charity chosen to benefit from fundraising during the year by chairman of Notts County Council for Coun Keith Walker (Con).

Holgate is a specialist in the arts and was joined by several other schools invited to take part in the show.

Proceeds will go to the RBL, which has branches in Hucknall and Bulwell and helps support serving and former military personnel and their families.

Coun Walker said: “I have been astounded by the local talent that I have seen at events since becoming chairman and my wife and I managed to entice a number of acts to play at a concert in aid of a very good cause.”
