THE search is on to find two singers who will represent Priestley College at a concert in aid of St Rocco’s Hospice.
Auditions will be held in January to discover the talented two who will get the chance to perform at the Parr Hall.On the night, one of the singers will win the chance to record a CD and £500 for their school or college.
Priestley will be staging an internal talent hunt and raising money for St Rocco’s at the same time.
Business BTEC Level 3 students are organising the Priestley auditions before a college final to decide who goes through to the Parr Hall.
“We want to try and make as much money as possible for St Rocco’s,” said Danielle Littler, a former Grange School pupil.
The 17 to 19 year olds have to plan a business event as part of their course and jumped at the chance to support the charity.
They plan to charge £1 for entry to watch the auditions and £2 to see the final. They are also organising a sponsored car wash and a raffle to generate further funds.
St Rocco’s Hospice has been established in Warrington for 28 years and provides specialist care for patients with cancer and other life limiting illnesses.
Its aim is to help everyone have the best quality of life by providing care and support in a friendly, relaxed environment.
The independent hospice and registered charity takes patients from Warrington and the surrounding areas.
“We are hoping to raise some awareness around Warrington about the charity so that more people know about it,” said former Bridgewater High School pupil Ellis Hodgkins.
Anyone wanting to audition needs to sign the sheets, which will be placed around Priestley College.
