THE organisers of an entertainment evening in aid of muscular dystrophy sufferer Amy Louise Collins from Crowthorne are hoping for a ‘leg up' from the community.

They are making an appeal to anyone who can offer a false leg as a prop for the show.

Two-year-old Amy, of Bramley Grove, suffers from a rare and severe form of the disease and needs specialist equipment to help her cope.

The music and dance evening called Tu2s: The return, is being organised by staff at Wellington College, Dukes Ride, Crowthorne, with all proceeds going to the Amy Louise Appeal Fund.

There are three performances planned which will take place at the college's theatre at the end of July.

Karen Reid, a fitness instructor at the college who is helping to organise the event, said: "We are looking for a false leg to use in one of show's numbers but we are trying to keep what we are going to do with it a surprise.

"Everyone in the show is an amateur dancer, some of the children from our street dance classes are taking part and we have even persuaded staff and management to join in too.

"It's a family show, very tongue in cheek and should be a lot of fun for everyone.

"We are also looking for some 50s, flower power and Asian style costumes, so if anyone can help please let me know."

The group is hoping to raise £5,000 for Amy through donations, a raffle and an auction at each of the performances.

Last year the group performed a show called Tu2s and raised £2,100 for Adam's Trust which benefited a little boy in Crowthorne who has a terminal brain tumour.

Tickets for the show will be available from the beginning of July for a donation of £5.
