Pupils hope to win visit from Nathan

Have your say

Schools across South Yorkshire are being given the chance to win a visit from a well-known singer/songwriter.

South Yorkshire Children’s Charity SAFE@LAST is inviting schools across the region to fundraise for their charity over the next few months. The school that raises the most money will win a personal live acoustic performance from Nathan Sykes, British singer and former member of boyband The Wanted, in their school this winter.

Schools are being encouraged to dress down or dress up, bake cakes, or wear odd socks in a bid to raise money for the charity, but pupils can be as creative as they wish to boost their fundraising target for a chance to win.

Pupils will have the opportunity to watch Nathan perform an exclusive acoustic performance in their school hall, and have the chance to meet and greet with the ‘Kiss Me Quick’ singer.

Every penny raised will go to the work of Depaul UK, including SAFE@LAST and NIGHTSTOP in South Yorkshire, supporting vulnerable young people in South Yorkshire who are at risk of running away, being kicked out and facing homelessness, with nowhere to stay and at risk of sleeping rough. It will also fund lifelines such as the SAFE@LAST helpline for Young People seeking help and advice.

Katie Eastburn, spokesperson for SAFE@LAST, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people across South Yorkshire to get involved, and win a live performance from Nathan Sykes. We love the idea at SAFE@LAST that young people are raising vital funds for our charity to provide ongoing services for young people - they are really doing it for themselves.”
