FUN-LOVING students put on a raucous comedy night and raised £4,500 for Comic Relief.
The 44 level two creative and media diploma students from Brune Park Community, Portchester Community and Brookfield Community schools entertained the crowds with 13 acts which they commissioned to perform in aid of the charity.
Performers ranged from comedians like Mr Cee – well known for his ‘Come Mek We Larf’ comedy nights in the West End – to Lewis Meada, an 11-year old ventriloquist who auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent.
Local band A.Y.E who won a talent show at Brune Park a few years ago, also performed at the event.
Amy Sheppard, 16, one of the organisers at the event held at Brune Park Community College, said: ‘The atmosphere on the night was fantastic.
‘I wasn’t expecting so many people to turn up, but it was nearly a full house.
‘I’m really pleased with the amount of money we raised.
‘I’m glad to have been a part of it.’
