This year’s Junior Charity Concert was held at the Burrell Theatre on Monday 4th March.
The event, organised entirely by the students, was expertly directed by Fin W, Alfie L, Jenna K and Ben J and included performances from students across the year groups. The effortless performances highlighted the talent and hard work of the students and the impressive leadership of the organising committee.
Following an excellent fundraising campaign, Fin took to the stage before the interval to receive a live charity head shave!
The night raised money for The Mermaid Centre and The Brain Tumour Charity – exact totals are still being counted but will be confirmed shortly.

Following the concert, we asked Fin a few questions:
What was the most stressful part of the organising the concert?
I was most stressed out on the night of the concert, hoping it was going to live up to expectations
What made you decide to have a head shave?
My mum was going partly bald during a surgery so I thought I could make her feel a bit better while raising a bit of money. I’ve also always wondered what I’d look like with no hair haha.
