A 14-year-old girl has raised hundred of pounds for a teenager’s mental health charity with a Battle school concert she organised.

Alice Brown wanted to raise money for a children’s charity, Believe in You, after it helped her get through a period of depression.

With the help of her sister Lucy and others, £850 was made through the student concert at Claverham Community College on Friday (February 5).

Alice was over the moon with the support she received from everyone as she could not believe how many people showed up.

“It was amazing as about 200 people turned up. It went really well and much better than I expected – everyone was really pleased,” she said.

“I think to know that I have possibly helped someone get through what I had to get through and get the support I needed feels great.”

Alice wanted to thank everyone who came to the concert and the charity was delighted to hear how much she had raised.
