The event called 'Geri's Song Showcase' will see performances from local talent at the Braza Club including Back Two, Sophie Frear and Jess Davis.

Twenty-nine-year-old Geri tragically died following a crash on March Road, in Coates, in June this year after her car left the road and entered Twenty Foot Drain.

Geri was academy manager of the 20Twenty Academy youth theatres and youth volunteering programs, as well as mentoring apprentices.

All money raised will help support disadvantaged children to access theatre and live performances.

The fund will help organisations that run LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) courses can apply for disadvantaged students.
