Freestyle Fitness are organising the LINCOLNSHIRE TALENT CONTEST, which has been set up to raise funds for Demi Knight, an 11-year-old girl with brain cancer. Demi has beaten this cancer once already, but it has returned, and the NHS can no longer provide treatment. Demi’s only option now is medical treatment overseas. This is achieving results – the tumour is reducing. But she still needs more treatment, and it costs £17,000 a month. The local community and fundraisers more widely have been working tirelessly to help raise this money so that Demi can keep fighting.
The Lincolnshire Talent Contest is joining these fundraising efforts, and will celebrate talent in Lincolnshire. Whether people can sing, dance, perform acrobatics, or do anything else to impress an audience, this will be the contest for them! Entrants will submit video auditions, and these will be judged by a minimum of three professional judges from a range of backgrounds. There will be five categories: under-8s, 8–13 years, 14–17 years, 18 years+ and group acts.
The top five acts from each category will be invited to perform at the final. This will be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Skegness, which has very kindly donated the venue hire for the event. The final will take place from 6pm on Saturday 26th January 2019!
