The 10 finalists for the High School Voice

First published in News

TALENTED youngsters used their musical talent to help raise money for St Rocco’s Hospice.

The hospice organised a High School Voice competition with five schools and colleges across the borough putting forward singers for the finals earlier this month.

A packed hall at Sir Thomas Boteler CE High School saw young people from Great Sankey, Penketh, Sir Thomas Boteler, Culcheth high schools and Priestley College perform.

Judges Nick Cupit, managing director of SHOWkids UK and creator of CODYS, professional singer Tina Redford and Sharon Cannell of St Rocco’s Hospice crowned Priestley student Eve Hardman the eventual winner.

Eve won a trophy and a two-hour session at the Star Studio, donated by Gulliver’s World and Priestley College won a £500 music prize from Norman’s Music donated by Shaun Stevenson of The Ring O’Bells, on Church Street.

The event helped to raise more than £1,000 for St Rocco’s and there are plans to run the competition again.
