A GROUP of Scarborough students proved there’s no business like show business as they collected more than £500 for the YMCA.
Pupils at Springhead School’s Sixth Form produced their own show A Touch of Hairspray, based on the hit musical Hairspray.
It is the first time the school has put on a show at the YMCA and the performers were greeted with a standing ovation.
Money raised through ticket sales, and during a raffle on show night, was presented to the YMCA. A total of £581.66 was donated.
Sixth form teacher Heather Woolley said: “The money was presented to the YMCA so they can help other groups to do similar sorts of projects.
“The production went very well. We had a standing ovation and lots of positive feedback. The students loved doing it too. It was a lot of hard work but incredibly rewarding for everyone.
“We have never done anything on this scale before and were delighted it was such a success.
“We would like to say a huge thank you to staff at the YMCA.
“They were so helpful in providing the facilities, in helping us set up for the show, and the organisation of the production.”
