A kind-hearted teenager who was so moved by hearing the plight of Ugandan orphans has organised a concert in their honour.

Lucy Buckley, 13, of Minster Close, Greetland, was horrified after listening to a talk given by medical sister at her school who had just returned from helping orphans in Uganda. She has now organised a cabaret concert and supper on December 7 at the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield.

All proceeds will go to Children of Hope, which works with ophaned children and child soldiers in Uganda. It will feature talented schoolmates and her friends from Strickland Cook Theatre School in Halifax where she attends. Tickets £15 from 07796 688571.
