The Fabulous ‘Miss G’ and her show team raised the colossal sum of £2,500 for the Queen Alexandra Hospital, during a Jubilee-themed fundraiser at the Royal Maritime Club in Portsea.
The event – ‘A Very Jubilant Miss G’ – was one of many the performer has held twice a year fundraisers for various charities including the Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association (DSA).
Passionate fundraiser and Southsea businessman, Andrew Pearce, well known for his magnificent ‘Miss G’ cabaret shows, runs award-winning Creatiques Bridal Boutique and The HairdressSir on Albert Road, with husband Robert Pearce.
‘Miss G’ performed alongside her team of singers and artists, Jodie Vinall, Andrew Talbot New, Betsy Campbell, the female cantando vocal choir and Robert Pearce, nicknamed ‘The Queen’.
“It was absolutely amazing – with the continued support of all my fans,” Andrew said.
“And of course the donations they had made to enable the QA people to contribute,” he added.

The band performed songs from 70 decades of the Queen’s reign to celebrate their platinum jubilee, which is due to take place on June 2, to a sold-out house.
Andrew has chosen to donate £2,500 to Portsmouth Hospital Trust, to raise money for a ‘much needed’ bladder scan for the QA Hospital, after one of his customers who works in the ward shared his ‘desperate’ need to have one.
“We have a great audience, our shows are always sold out every year,” Andrew’s husband Robert added.
Proceeds from all ‘Miss G’ cabaret performances are donated to charity, with the next set taking place on May 22 – ‘Miss G’s Afternoon Tea’ – at the Portsmouth Marriott Hotel in Cosham, £25 per ticket and all profits donated to ASD Portsmouth.
During the evening, the fabulous Miss G also presented her “The Miss GBES” awards to her guests, to thank them for their support over the past 26 years of performing.
A handover of Andrew’s check to QA Hospital is due to take place in the coming weeks.
