A GROUP of medical students will perform the Full Monty during a night of fundraising for the Anthony Nolan Trust.

The event has been organised by Durham Marrow, a student branch of the Anthony Nolan Trust, and will see teams of first and second-year medical students from the University of Durham, Queen's Campus, Stockton, taking part.

There will also be two first and second-year female teams performing a cabaret-style dance. Each team has been given the same music, a set of costumes and have been asked to perfect a Full Monty-style performance.

The event will take place tonight in the student's social centre, the Rocket Union, in Thornaby, and the winners will be chosen by a panel that includes the mayor of Stockton, Councillor Ann Cains.

Durham Marrow co-ordinator Jennifer Scaife said: "It is great fun with a serious message and helps to raise the profile of the trust's lifesaving work. We are also busy training medical students to run our first donor registration clinic, which will be up and running in the new year."
