NOSTALGIA: St Bede’s pupils stage talent show for Kosovo in 1996

St Bede’s pupils had been working hard to send children’s clothes to the needy in Kosovo, 25 years ago, but needed to raise £150 to send them there.

So the pupils organised several fundraising events including a penalty shoot-out, a sponsored silence for one ‘very talkative year 11 girl’, a bring-and-buy stall and finally, a talent show.

The winners from this were both from Year 11 – Nicky Lyon and his Peter Andre (Prince Nazzim dance) and Swinging Sisters Becky Green, Sadie Booth and Emma Baker, who performed a Sixties mix.

They managed to beat their fundraising goal and raise £170.
