A fundraising gig in King's Lynn has moved two Springwood High School students closer to their dream of going to Costa Rica.

Louis Pitcher and Isaac Mayes want to join The Camps Foundation for a 4 week expedition to help community build sanitation blocks, homes and toilets. They are also hoping to battle against deforestation by re-planting trees, which will help to reform habitats for wildlife.

Three bands performed on the night, with 'The Kicking Dolls' opening the set, followed by CWA band Kartofel, ending with Louis and Isaac's headlining band 'Post Pending'. Band members range from 12 to 18 years old and all came together to support Isaac and Louis in their mission to go to Costa Rica.

They need to raise £8,000 in total and their fundraiser at College of West Anglia , notched up an extra £160 towards their total. 

Louis said: 

"We raised in total £160 from the gig. Family and friends came along to support us which was awesome. Hopefully, we are going to be hosting a couple more fundraisers over the next couple of months. It was a really good and enjoyable night."

Both Louis and Isaac attend Play Up, a project aimed at teaching and building a youth music community in West Norfolk and allowing young musicians to meet one another, form bands, rehearse and play gigs under guidance.

The project's founder, John Kramarchuk, said:

"I would like to thank CWA for offering this opportunity to our musicians, and to the Norfolk Music Hub for funding the Play Up project. It was great experience for our youngsters to play on such a stage with in-house support. We're looking forward to future gigs and finding more musicians. Thanks to everyone involved with this project".
