Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help my son reach his dream of being a Musical Theatre Actor/Model

UP AND COMING ACTOR
From the age of 6, David has been deep into acting and always wanted to be one of the Doctors (Dr Who). Growing up as an "Army Brat" meant moving from pillar to post every couple of years due to my job. It was only when we finally settled in Stockton On Tees, he finally got to knuckle down to doing drama.
Joining a local Drama Academy (PQA), he got to channel his skills, passing Trinity Exams and getting to do a PQA Performance at Her Majesty's Theatre. He definitely has a passion for Musical Theatre and has a professional stage presence, showing no nerves.
Turning 16, we are now looking at ways to break in to the limelight and get his profile out there and have booked a Casting Day, mid August, where they are going to spend 3 hours doing a photo shoot and build him a Portfolio.
The big issue and why I need your help, is that the photo's cost £50 each and now no longer being a member of the Armed Forces and having to work a 'Normal' job, money is Tight.
Any funds given, will be greatly appreciated, from me, my family and especially David.

About the fundraiser
Having served for 23 years, it's now my turn to support my family in their ventures, especially my son, who has a deep passion for performing arts. I'm hoping, with people's help, to make his dream come true.
