A group of teenagers from St George’s Catholic School, in Maida Vale, are calling on people to help them out after funding fell through for a London-wide colleges and sixth forms talent show they have been organising.
They have been part of a scheme called Show Me Wot You Got, an extra curricular activity enabling them to prepare for a work environment by taking on roles such as finance, marketing, communications, event planning and leadership.
The culmination of a year of hard work is a talent show involving 20 colleges and sixth forms across London.
This year, however, they have been unable to raise the funding needed for their final show and they have set up a crowdfunding campaign to raise the capital.
Pupils at the school need to collect £8,000 by June 8 or the show will not go ahead.
