STARS of stage and screen will perform a high-profile charity show at the London Palladium in memory of Adrian Sudbury.
The show on Sunday October 26 has been organised by John Sheerman, the actor son of Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman.
He will direct the production of Me And My Girl, which is being put together in a daring 48 hours.
It will star a cast of 120 professional actors and dancers.
Big name celebrities are expected in the audience.
It is being held to raise funds for the Anthony Nolan Trust (ANT), which runs one of the UK’s two bone marrow donor registers.
The show has been organised in memory of Examiner journalist Adrian Sudbury, 27, who died from leukaemia in August.
He had spent the last months of his life campaigning with the ANT to raise awareness of bone marrow donation.
The show is also in memory of Brighouse doctor Donna McCormick, who died of leukaemia in January at the age of just 37.
The clinical psychologist attended Brighouse High School with John Sheerman and was a good friend of his sister, Lucy.
