The schools have chosen to support the charity, as Nick Plummer-Walsh, principal of Stagecoach Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield Beighton, volunteers for the charity as a community first responder. 

Choreographed by Nick and Hannah Bloomer, principal of Stagecoach Barnsley, the  event will see 200 students from all four schools, ranging from the ages of four to 18, take to the stage in a musical extravaganza.

Parents, friends and family are invited to attend the black-tie event, where they will be treated to a three-course dinner. Following the performance,  local band Electric Idols will play.

Volunteers from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service will attend the event and will offer CPR demonstrations and life-saving skills throughout the evening.

The YAS ’s training ambulance will also be on site so that students and families can learn more about the work carried out by the charity.

Nick said “I am exceptionally proud of every single student for throwing themselves into fundraising activities and the charity gala promises to be quite the spectacle!

“It is endearing to see the children develop compassion, by dedicating themselves to such a worthwhile cause, while their teamwork, focus and perseverance will stay with them far beyond April’s performance.

“It is important for the students to give back to the local community and the Yorkshire Ambulance Service has a special place in our hearts.

“At Stagecoach, we aim to unlock ‘Creative Courage for Life’ in all our students and want to inspire them to address the issues that shape the world around them.”
