Jonathan raising funds to support charity work

A BOROUGH teenager is raising funds to take on charity work in Kenya.

Jonathan Docherty, from West Allotment, is preparing to take part in a project organised by Team Kenya that supports and works with communities in Western Kenya.

The 18-year-old is now fundraising for his mission, and is organising bag packs and other activities across the borough.

A charity concert will be held at Newcastle Labour Club on Saturday, October 1, where The Blues Hounds and The Freeloaders will perform.

Singers Lauren Armour and Lana Inglis, as well as dancer Toxic Cherry, will also perform in the show in October, which will be hosted by TV presenter and actor Michael McNally.

There will also be a raffle and prizes include a book specially signed for the event by Russell Brand and a £50 voucher donated by Fenwicks.

Tickets for the event are being sold at £5 each and are available by e-mailing
