Young Chorley talent was in abundance when the mayor hosted a schools’ YOUth Got Talent show in the Lancastrian Suite of the town hall.
All money raised from the event was for the mayor’s charities: St Catherine’s Hospice, Help the Homeless and Chorley Homestart.
Mayor of Chorley councillor Roy Lees said: “YOUth Got Talent was a terrific evening and all the money raised will be donated to the mayor’s charities. The event exceeded my expectations and the schools did a fantastic job. The character Olaf from the film Frozen appeared at the end when Southlands student Jessica Clarke was singing ‘Let it Go’. This mesmerised the primary school children and the audience was laughing as the large snowman danced along to the students singing. It was a brilliant finale to end a great evening.”
Chorley MP Lindsay Hoyle said: “It was a great night that portrayed young people in a really positive way. All the young people delivered fantastic performances and the evening raised money for the mayor’s charities. The town hall is a great building in the heart of Chorley and the venue is at its best when hosting events like this.”
Mr Fowle, head teacher of Southlands High School, Chorley said “Southlands students thoroughly enjoyed performing at YOUth Got Talent. They were all nervous as the Lancastrian Suite is a large, impressive venue and the event was well supported by the local community but they overcome their fears to deliver four superb performances. Well done.”
