Furness Building Society invites Bolton's most talented to enter charity challenge
TALENTED performers from Bolton are being invited to step into the spotlight for the chance to win a share of more than £3,000 for charity.
The Furness Building Society Charity Challenge is looking for singers, dancers, solo acts or groups to grab their smart phones or iPads and record a video clip to showcase their skills.
Performers can upload their videos online for a chance to land a place in the final at the Lancaster Grand Theatre on February 8.
Last year Josh Taylor, of Silver Birch Close, Lostock, impressed judges with his powerful rendition of Bring Him Home, from hit musical Les Misérables. The Rivington and Blackrod High School pupil came third in contest and won £500 for Derian House Children’s Hospice, Chorley.
Martin Cutbill is director of sales and marketing at Furness Building Society, which gives away more than £360,000 to good causes through its charity savings accounts each year.
He said: “The Charity Challenge is a fun way of drawing attention to the work of those charities.
The volunteers are the biggest asset for any charity and the people who are willing to step into the spotlight for their good cause do so in the same spirit of helping others and, of course, can have a great experience in our final.”
The ultimate winner will also get the chance to be a star for a day with their own VIP recording session, which could put them on the road to fame and fortune.
The sooner people enter, the longer their videos will be live online, raising more awareness for the good work of their nominated charity or good cause.
Closing date for entries is December 1 when the judges will select the acts to perform at the live final for the top prize of £1,000 or runner-up prizes of £750 for second place and £500 for third place.
Every other finalist will receive £100 cash for their chosen charity. To upload a video, visit furnessbs.co.uk/charitychallenge.
