IT’S not every teenager that could arrange and go on to star in a charity concert - but this Sheffield girl is doing exactly that.

Amy Carnell will be joined by her sister Katie and their friends Rachael Morton, Emily Goldthorpe, Adam Walton, Ben Jones, James Cadman, and Macka Windle on stage at Beighton Sports and Leisure Club for a fundraising concert.

The 15-year-old has organised a night of top class entertainment on Friday to raise cash for servicemen and women’s charity Help for Heroes.

Amy has organised everything from booking the venue to selling tickets and asking local businesses to support their night by donating raffle prizes as well as performing in the show herself.

The youngster, of Tye Road, Beighton, who attends Aston Comprehensive School, said: “I’ve been so busy that I really haven’t had time to get nervous about my performance.

“I think that so far there are around 100 people coming to the show and hopefully there will be more. Besides our performances there will also be a disco and a raffle with great prizes and every penny will go to Help for Heroes.”

All the children involved in the event are aged 14 or 15 and attend Westfield or Aston School, except for Katie, nine, who attends Brookhouse.

Supporter Aubrey Hill, of School Road, Beighton, said: “In this day and age where we seem to be forever condemning our children, it’s fantastic these youngsters are showing their appreciation of what our servicemen are doing and the sacrifices they are making. They deserve all our support.”

n The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets, priced £2, will be available on the door.
