It’s all for fun with all entry money going to charity. The prize money has been donated.
Velton Lishke said:I got the idea from a friend who is part of Burnley’s got talent and it inspired me to try it with Harrogate, not just because it’s a fun way to raise money for the charity but also because I thought it would lift people’s spirits.People seem to be dealing with the effects of lockdown differently, a lot of people currently seem to be arguing over how serious one and other treats the pandemic and this is straight off the back of the whole town arguing about brexit … or the Stray or…… you get what I mean!I thought this town needs some positivity, something I’ve tried many times with my sketches and videos but I guess with limited success.I am doing this on my own still working 37-hours as a key worker – Binman as well as still trying to get my film career off the ground and my Harrogate based sitcom, but I thought if I don’t try no one will.
Every contestant, no matter what age, what talent – ANYONE can enter!
However there is an entry fee of £5 which can be donating on this JustGiving page that goes straight to the charity. Also you can still donate whether or not you enter.
