A talent show is being staged in Longwell Green next month to raise money for two charities.

It is being organised by staff at Aphrodite’s Looking Glass hair and beauty salon in Hanham High Street and will take place at Longwell Green Community Centre on Saturday 24th May at 7.30pm.

Funds raised will go to the Lullaby Trust, which provides specialist support for bereaved families and anyone affected by a sudden infant death, and the Wallace & Gromit Children’s Foundation, which supports Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Aphrodite beautician Aimee Harrison said the Lullaby Trust had been chosen in memory of 11-month-old Teddy Cheese, son of Matt Cheese, who runs Matt’s Place in Hanham High Street. Teddy died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome earlier this year.

The Wallace & Gromit Children’s Foundation was chosen as it supported Aimee’s baby daughter Isla in her fight against meningitis.

So far acts lined up for the talent show include ballet dancers, singers and a pole dancer. The organisers are looking for acts of all ages and also anyone with modelling experience as there will be a catwalk section in the show.

If you have a talent you would like to showcase email algsalon@gmail.co.uk
