Kieran Gaffney from Britain’s Got Talent and Kane Riccia, of Got To Dance, are just two of the attractions at a charity show on Sunday organised by a Romford woman.

Called Never Forget Them, the show at the Palace Theatre, Station Road, Westcliff, has been organised by Danielle Everitt in aid of skin charity DebRA.

Audiences can look forward to West End singers, dance schools including Beverly Marks Stage School, Urdang Academy, celebrity guest speakers and much more.

There will also be raffles with prizes from TV celebrity Paul O’Grady and Tottenham and Chelsea football clubs.

Danielle, 22 ,first became involved in the work of the charity about six years ago when she saw a documentary about a man suffering from a genetic skin blistering condition called epidermolysis bullosa (EB).

As a result of the show in 2005, she organised a special performance at Abbs Cross School, Abbs Cross Lane, Hornchurch to raise money for the charity.

She said: “Now in 2011 I feel it is time to produce another show but on a much bigger scale.”

Tickets are £18.50 from 01702 351135. For more information about the condition visit
