BRIDPORT'S Opera Circus, with the help of Rory Newbery, Molly Foster, Katy Bird and other young people in Dorset, is hoping to raise £25,000 for 40 special needs children in orphanages in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Some of the young people who came out with Tina Ellen Lee’s Opera Circus to Srebrenica on the Like a Film in My Mind Youth in Action project are helping with the fundraising campaign, which has to raise the money in 60 days.

Tina Ellen Lee said: “Your help is vital to ensure we can help to create all the happiness that this two weeks of summer care provides, not only for the children but for a break for their parents and carers as well.”

Donations can be made via the website, search for youth music camp for diasavantaged children.
