A former Worle student has started to live his performing arts dream after a number of fundraising events were held by friends and family.

Jack Evison, aged 17, left Priory Community School in the summer to study at the CPA Studios in London.

He is working 55 hours a week juggling college and work commitments, but has begun rubbing shoulders with the likes of Ronan Keating and Joe McElderry within weeks of arriving in London.

Jack was a pupil of Tina Counsell School of Dance and Drama, in Weston, from when he was four years old.

He previously told the Mercury he lives to dance, but needed £37,000 to help him achieve his dream.

He said: “Thanks to everyone who has supported me and to Priory Community School for giving me the belief and support to pursue my dream career.”

He also thanked the Grand Pier team for their support in fundraising events.
