A popular singer has been rehearsing for a forthcoming fundraising concert for a little girl.

Johnny Red will be performing his popular Rock n Roll show alongside cabaret singer Shaun Foster-Conley from the award-winning television comedy drama Benidorm for seven-year-old Grace Moverley.

The pair will be belting out hits from the 1950s to the 1990s, with Johnny dipping into his Johnny and the Jailbirds repertoire, to raise lots of money for Grace who was born with an acute condition which caused her heart to be upside down and on the wrong side of her body.

The gig is being organised by the Swivel Club and last week Johnny put in some rehearsal time at Rushden Bowls Club where the fundraiser is being held.

He said: “It’s a pleasure to do a charity gig for the Swivel Club. It has become a regular thing over the years and it’s great to work with them for such a good cause.”

The club hopes to raise money to help the Moverley family, of Raunds, buy equipment to make life more comfortable for Grace.

Swivel Club chairman Rodney Waterfield said: “Ticket sales have been steady but we could always do with selling more. It’s a good local cause and will be a great night too.

“Please come along and help us support Grace.”

The event will be held on March 10.

Doors open at 7.30pm, food will be available and there will be a bar until midnight.

Tickets cost £10 and are available by calling 01933 312680, 07984 266649 or 01933 395906.
