A FUN-packed variety show in Fleetwood with no less than a dozen acts will be out to raise money for a good cause this Saturday.

The Marine Hall show will raise cash to support disabled youngster Summer Atkinson, who suffers from a severe neurological disorder, and the Brian House hospice for children.

The man behind the show is Tom Johnson, whose sons run Disco Inferno – one of the acts who will all give their services free in aid of the three-year-old.

The show begins at the unusual time of 7.20pm, and it is hoped they can exceed the £1,800 raised in a similar effort two years ago for North West Air Ambulance.

Tom, who will also compere the show, said: “People were saying we should do another show, and we thought helping little Summer would be great. We have three great prizes on the night, including an automated scooter and a Wii console game.

“We are hoping that, with the £816 we raised at our fund-raising show at the Dockers Club last month, we can raise as much as £3,000 altogether.”

One of the intriguing personalities at the event will be Simon Cowell’s burly bodyguard Tony Adkins, who has built up his own following. The evening will open with the Fleetwood Old Boys’ Band and other performers will include singers B, Ryan Cregan, who was on Britain’s Got Talent, 11-year-old Chloe Ann, Rebecca Jayne and Zoe Denice.

There will be a Michael Jackson tribute, dancing from the Royalettes, Royal Funk and Cosmic Experience and puppetry entertainer Chubbz. Also on the bill are JLS tribute act Just Look Similar, from Cardiff.

Tickets costing £5 are available on the door or by phoning (01253) 872442.
