THE students from Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts in Southport dazzled their family and friends with a spectacular performance of PQA's show:- 'The Lazy Ace' that took place on Sunday, 16 July 2017! As part of PQA's curriculum, the students have the opportunity to perform at Shaftesbury Theatre London, and get to experience the thrill and buzz of performing on a West End Stage!

'The Lazy Ace' is a musical comedy set on the glitzy, glamourous Las Vegas Strip in the 1950s; Detective Chip Buddy is in search of a card shark known as:- 'The Lazy Ace' amongst the hustle and bustle of the casino scene. PQA Southport had the freedom to be as imaginative and creative with their part of the show as they like, from the casting, staging and choreography.

The Principal from PQA Southport Sarah Barnes said:- "The students should be so proud of all their hard work leading up to the show. Their professionalism, their confidence on stage and how their lines were delivered to perfection resembles the highest West End Stage performer. Above all the students had fun and absolutely loved performing to a sell out crowd."

BBC Children in Need awards ₤106,000 in new funding to Southport

BBC Children in Need has awarded Southport a further ₤106,863 to support a project working with disadvantaged children and young people in the Town. This latest boost of funding, from the charity's Main Grants programme, brings the total currently invested in Sefton to more than ₤769,000. The newly awarded grant comes as BBC Children in Need celebrates its highest ever fundraising total; ₤60m was raised during the charity's 2016 appeal. The record breaking total is the culmination of the efforts of every single person across the UK who supported the charity in 2016. The money raised will go towards projects that work with children and young people who are affected by a range of disadvantages including those affected by homelessness, neglect, deprivation and poverty or young people who are encountering a serious illness or bereavement. In the last year alone BBC Children in Need has been able to positively impact over 480,000 young lives in communities throughout the UK.

Home Start Southport and Formby will use the grant, over 3 years, to deliver the 'Play to Learn' project to children who are facing a range of disadvantages and live in an area of deprivation. The funding will enable the project to train volunteers who will work with children and their families in their own home to deliver play and early years learning activities which will help to encourage positive relationships between parent and child, develop the children's emotional health and wellbeing and improve their development.  Annie Ives, Manager at Home Start Southport and Formby said:- "It's fantastic news to hear that our funding from BBC Children in Need will continue for a further 3 years. With this we'll be able to continue working with some of the most isolated children in our community and make a positive difference to their early year's development."

Speaking of the new grants, Isabel Farnell, BBC Children in Need Regional Head of the North said:- "We're delighted to be supporting Home-Start Southport and Formby which will work with disadvantaged children and young people in the local community and make a difference to their lives."

Speaking of the news, Simon Antrobus, Chief Executive of BBC Children in Need said:- "These grants would not have been possible had it not been for the incredible support shown across the UK in 2016. To everyone who fundraised and donated in 2016, thank you, the money raised really will go on to make a huge difference to children and young people throughout the UK who need it most."
