Beauty queen Jade takes to the stage for Niamh

A 20-year-old beauty who was bitten by the fund-raising bug while campaigning for the Miss South Yorkshire title is set to continue her charitable efforts.

Jade Mellows has organised an all-singing, all dancing night of entertainment at the Silverwood Miners’ Welfare, off Doncaster Road, Dalton, in aid of Rotherham Hospice, SAFE@LAST and the Hope for Niamh Fund.

The event will see the Miss South Yorkshire beauty contest finalist performing all the hits from the famous Grease musical on stage alongside a cast of enthusiastic young singers and dancers on February 18.

It comes seven months after she and her friends raised money for SAFE@LAST with a bikini car wash at the Stag roundabout.

Jade, from Catcliffe, said: “Last year I was raising money as part of the Miss South Yorkshire competition but I really got bitten by the bug.

“I got a lot out of raising money for charity and handing over the proceeds felt great.So now I’m back again.

“The cast has put in a huge amount of effort and I just hope we can attract an audience to reward all our efforts and raise as much money as we can.”

Hope for Niamh is a fund set up in an effort to raise money for eight-year-old Niamh Power, from Maltby.

Niamh has undergone her third major operation in twelve months to remove a fast growing, re-occurring brain tumour and efforts are now underway to fund potential life-saving surgery abroad.

As well as the Grease-themed entertainment on February 18, guests at Jade’s show will also be wowed by a troop of traditional Irish dancers and get the opportnity to take part in a raffle.

Tickets for the charity night are priced at £5 for adults and £3 for concessions and can be bought on the night or from the Halo salon, at Stag, where Jade works. Doors open at 7.15pm.
