Rock’n’Roll will help an Epworth teenager raise the funds she needs to help orphaned children who have Aids.

Olivia Johnson is to work with stricken orphans in Zimbabwe this summer, but needs another £1000 to get her there.

To raise the cash, she will hold a band night this Saturday, April 5, with rockers Slinky Peach at Parklands, Doncaster, and tickets are on sale now.

Olivia said: “I have some fabulous raffle prizes donated which will hopefully generate some interest and funds, plus I have a signed football from Doncaster Rovers, an official Doncaster Rovers Team Sheet signed by One Directioner Louis Tomlinson, plus a signed Doncaster Knight Rugby Union shirt - these are all going up for auction.

“I am hoping this event will get me almost to my final target which will be amazing. I am so excited about my trip and have been busy collecting resources to take out with me to the orphanage.”

To enjoy a night out and to help Olivia and the orphans in Zimbabwe, book tickets for £3 on 07827315066.
