Students wow crowds across the city raising money for charity

Musical Theatre and Dance students from SGS College’s performing arts department spread Christmas cheer throughout Bristol over the past week, raising money for Southmead Hospital Charity as part of their Buskathon Event, Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, and Children's Hospice South West.

Monday saw the College’s dance students visit Southmead Hospital for a series of performances, while on Wednesday the musical theatre students sang Christmas carols and pop songs at Cabot Circus, Broadmead and the galleries. The same students performed for the Women's Institute at Hanham and also travelled to Southmead hospital on Friday, raising spirits throughout the Brunel Building. Over the week the students raised more than £500 and counting. 

Julie Hembrough, Work Placement Coach at SGS College said:

“The tutors and students have been working tirelessly to prepare for these events. They really wanted to demonstrate their skills and put on a fantastic show. They did not disappoint.There were so many happy people enjoying the performances.

“We all feel extremely passionate about the brilliant work Southmead Hospital Charity, Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal and Children's Hospice South West do. They are all fantastic.

"Each year I have arranged for students to perform to raise money for charity and increase their confidence and industry exposure. The support from Cabot Circus, The Galleries Shopping Centre and Broadmead has been remarkable, it's their busiest time of year yet they still were willing to support the students and the charities. Thank you to all involved.”
