GOSH What a Night!
A group of students at South Essex College have organised a fun-filled evening of entertainment to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Level 3 Business students were tasked with creating and running an event as part of their course with one group deciding to host a live event.
Chloe Wade, Elliot Barrett, Abigail Evans, Lewis Edge, and Zac Piggott have been busy getting everything ready for their event, GOSH What a Night!, which takes place in the Maritime Room at the Cliff’s Pavilion on Thursday 17 March.
The event will feature music from former student, and X-Factor finalist, Che Chesterman as well as Robbie Williams tribute act Scott Borley. Saxophonist Christian Beck and magician Darren McQuade will also entertain the crowd. On the night there will also be a raffle with prizes including an iPad mini, David Lloyd Vouchers and £500 worth of Whirlpool vouchers.
Tickets are just £20 each and can be purchased from www.ticketsource.co.uk/whats-on/essex/cliffs-pavilion-maritime-suite/gosh-what-a-night/e-amlzbm
Student Chloe Wade said it has been an amazing project to be involved in.
She said: “We wanted to raise money for GOSH because it is such a worthwhile cause. The thought of being able to make a difference to their lives inspired us to go big and aim to generate as much money as we can!
“This project has helped us all gain real life experience of organising an event and liaising with various stakeholders has given both myself and my team more confidence. It has been a real challenge with so many things to consider however we have kept pushing through and are happy with where we are now!”
Chloe was also quick to thank local organisations for their support promoting the event and donating raffle prizes.
“A special thanks goes to Jokers Entertainment. When they found out it was a charity event they were really keen to support us and provided more acts than we originally planned for so we could raise as much money as possible.”
The event on Tuesday 17 March starts at 7.30pm with doors opening at 7pm. You can get tickets from www.ticketsource.co.uk/whats-on/essex/cliffs-pavilion-maritime-suite/gosh-what-a-night/e-amlzbm
