A GIRL band who shot to fame on a reality TV talent show are set to hit the stage in South Tyneside to help raise funds for charity.

Irresistible will be performing at the Armstrong Hall in Stanhope Road, South Shields, on Saturday, September 21, in aid of Impact Family Services.

The charity, based in the town’s Beach Road provides support to victims of domestic abuse and families going through a relationship breakdown in South Tyneside.

The group, made up of Jayne Welch, from Hebburn, Courtney Wallis and Natalie Wood, catapulted onto the TV screens with the help of ITV’s show Britain’s Got Talent.

The girls, who specialise in the swing style of the 1940s, made it through to the semi-finals of the competition in 2008 and since then have been playing at events across Europe.

They have also supported the Glenn Miller Orchestra on tour, accompanying them on the big band hits including In The Mood and Chattanooga Choo Choo, and next month will share a stage with Ms Dynamite at the Army in The Park festival in Middlesex.

Margaret Welch, development and volunteer manager at Impact Family Services, said: “We are really excited Irresistible have agreed to perform at our charity fundraiser.

“They always put on a really good show, but what will make it even more special is everyone who attends will be raising money and helping to support a really good cause.”

Tickets for the event, which include an Indian buffet, supplied by the Hedworth Hall, are available now priced £20 by calling in at 17 Beach Road, South Shields.

Businesses can also sponsor a table on the night.
