A group of schoolchildren have raised 20,000 pounds to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The 10 teenagers from Haileybury School in Hertfordshire, are performing a trilogy called 'Out of Character'.

The play looks at the lives of severely brain-damaged kids, who are being helped by the charity The Children's Trust.

Puppetry

Through acting, music, mime, puppetry and dance, they explore the feelings a child goes through when he or she suffers brain-damage following an accident.

They also look at how this affects the teenager's family and how the Children's Trust nurses them back to health.

The schoolchildren have already raised more than 25,000 for the charity in addition to the 20,000 they needed to get them to Edinburgh.

The show runs from 1 - 10 August, and can be seen at the Pleasance Two Theatre in Edinburgh.
