He has been offered a place at the Academy of Performance Training in Guildford in October and is now doing fundraising events to help raise money for the course.

Jamie said: “This course will strengthen and develop my performance skills so I can go on to work in the industry.

“I have always had a passion for performing because it has always helped me gain confidence in myself and helped me accept who I am. From a young age, I was performing with local amateur drama groups and getting involved in anything that involved drama.

“By attending APT, I would hope to achieve a stronger core strength and physical stamina, improved vocal technique including diction and clarity, and a better understanding of what the industry wants.

“The money needs to be raised by the end of August so I can pay the training centre for the year.”

His first event is a sponsored walk from Littlehampton to Brighton and Jamie has set up a GoFundMe page to boost his fundraising.
