A fun musical drama show ‘for all ages’ is to be held in Anderby Creek this week to raise cash to help a local lad with severe disabilities.

The Anderby Charity Entertainers are holding their tenth annual show on Thursday, Friday and Saturday to raise money for special therapy sessions in the US to help 20-year-old local lad Joshua Russell.

His mum Lisa Russell, of Huttoft, said: “Joshua was born with cerebral palsy, he’s blind and suffers with epilepsy and severe learning disabilities. We are hoping to take him for some dolphin therapy in America this August as he went five years ago and it was very successful in making a difference to him.”

The show, entitled ‘Songs of the Century’, will feature chart music from the 20th century - from 1920s Charleston and Elvis - to Roy Orbison and the Spice Girls.

It takes place at Anderby village hall, from 7.30pm each evening. Admission is £4, (£3 children and OAPs).
