Eleven Shropshire students studying BTEC Music will be busking in a busy Shrewsbury street to raise funds for The Back-Up Trust which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

The Concord College year 10’s will be performing a repertoire of popular songs and playing instruments outside Boots on Pride Hill in Shrewsbury this coming Saturday 5th March from 11am – 3pm.

The group has been inspired to busk for Back-Up by the bravery of fellow student Tom Baines, 13, whose spinal injury has confined him to a wheelchair.

He is giving something back to the trust for whom he is now a wheelchair skills trainer.

Said one of the group’s leaders Alisar Tabet, 14: “Tom has motivated us to fundraise for the trust which is a UK organisation providing information and support for those affected by a spinal cord injury.”

Chloe Young, 15, who lives close to the college in Acton Burnell, said the students would be wearing Back-Up bright orange teeshirts and singing to a variety of instruments which will include guitars, violin, trumpet, drum and keyboard.

“We are hoping people will come along to hear us perform and also donate generously to Back-Up which delivers services that help to re-build confidence and self-belief.”

As part of their BTEC Music studies, the Concord students are also organising a charity fundraising concert for The Back-Up Trust at the college on April 21st when they will be inviting villagers to attend.
