STRICTLY Come Dancing star Russell Grant will meet members of a children’s society at the Kings Theatre on Monday.

Russell will meet staff from Cabrini Children’s Society, who will be recruiting foster carers in Portsmouth for two weeks from Monday.

The team will be appealing for more families to come forward and join their project, which offers long term foster placements to children.

It will coincide with Russell’s performance in Grease, which runs from Monday until Saturday at the Albert Road theatre.

Tracey Hayes, manager of the team, said: ‘We have four foster families in Portsmouth and we’d like to recruit four more. We are so grateful to Russell for supporting us.’
