The winner of a Wessex FM Inspirational Youth Award needs your help to keep our future stars in the spotlight.
Jodie Glover from Bridport was honoured at our latest local hero ceremony for her work in setting up the The Bridport Performance Scholarship Scheme.
The scheme currently appeals for charity within the Bridport area and the group holds a performance every Christmas in order to raise more money; however, the money donated's still not enough to help support every single student.
Jodie told Wessex: "We always like to make sure our fundraisers are as beneficial for the supporters as it is for the scholars. We put on shows and provide entertainment for the local people. They can see people growing up from a young age wanting to perform and actually achieving their goals."
Being a student at the Italia Conti Performing Arts School, Jodie knows first-hand of the struggles when meeting large tuition fees. She hopes that her scheme'll not only help her own future, but those of her fellow performers.
