Lecturer in creative industries at East Durham College, Billy Nicholson, can’t wait to see the teams exciting ideas come together for what is sure to be a great night in April.

Billy said: “The students wanted to put on an evening event as part of their course to help raise some money for the local community.

“When they researched into the work done by Hartlepool Hospice they knew that’s who they wanted to help.

“The ideas for the night so far have been brilliant and I can’t wait to see it all come together and hopefully we can raise a good sum of money to help towards the hard work the hospice does.”
