Year 13 student Steven Gee hosted a concert in the Music department in aid of Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. The event was close to Steven’s heart, to honour the memory of his friend Jemma-Louise Roberts, who sadly passed away in 2014, at 13 years of age.

The dress code for the day was ‘wear something bright’, which students and staff observed to celebrate Jemma-Louise’s memory. Jemma-Louise’s parents attended the concert, which included beautiful musical performances from students who had known Jemma-Louise and performed in the same band.
Dance students also donned technicolour t-shirts for an uplifting routine.

It was an extremely emotional event but a fitting tribute to the life of Jemma-Louise and a fantastic opportunity to raise funds for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

All of the staff at St John Rigby College are proud of Steven and the performers across the department who maintained their composure to put on a beautiful show for their friend.
