A GROUP of A-Level Leisure Studies students from Saffron Walden County High School are hosting a Beatles Tribute Night in aid of charity.

The 'Upbeat Beatles' will be performing live in the school's main hall on February 7.

Much of the profits from the event will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust, an organisation that specialises in helping teenagers cope with their conditions, and the students are hoping to raise £2000 in order to pay for a patient-controlled electric bed which is essential during periods of critical illness.

The remainder of the profits will go to The South Africa Project, a school-run charity which raises money for development projects.

Event organiser and team leader, Hayley Skeet, said: "With the support of all the team members and volunteers we are confident that the event will be a success, raise lots of money for charity, and put on a good show for the people of Saffron Walden."

Alongside the band there will be a fully stocked bar. There are only 500 tickets available, priced £10, which can be purchased from the Tourist Information Centre or by emailing 02Hayley_sk@saffronwalden.essex.sch.co.uk
