AT the age of 11 his tap-dancing antics on the streets helped raise a whopping £10,000 to fund his place at a performing arts school.

Now Winchester’s answer to Billy Elliot is at it again – this time raising cash for charity.

Scott Milner wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped him achieve his dream and secure a place at Tring Park School.

Now his six-hour stint with his troupe, Offbeat, has brought money rolling in for Naomi House children’s hospice.

Scott said: “I’ve come back to say a massive thank you to Winchester.”

The group – made up of Matt Hill, Chris Sparkes, both 17, and 18-year-old Joao Carolino – hope to raise £500 for the children’s charity.

Scott added: “We have set a target of £500 but even if we don’t raise that we’re still happy to raise any money we can.”
