My story

[p]Introduced in 2018 Events R Talented is a concept by four friends all of whom work in the events industry. The four friends being Ken Findlay, Paul Tidy, Matt Curran and Graeme Saunders. [/p][p]We are looking to showcase performance talent from within the events industry and entries are only open to Events Professionals. We look for talent who can sing, dance, stand-up or other alternative acts. [/p][p]In 2018 we raised £6000 for Great Hearts Starfish Charity children who look after children in rural South Africa affected by HIV/AIDs. In 2019 we raised £8000 for the London based Buses 4 Homeless charity. [/p][p][b]For 2020, we are raising funds for Hospices of Hope, a UK charity that supports disadvantaged children affected by severely life limiting illnesses in some of the poorest countries in Europe. Countries such as Moldova and Albania.[/b][/p][p][b]At present we are all affected by the global COVID-9 crisis and unfortunately this will affect our fund-raising abilities over the coming months. However, this will not dissuade us and we will continue to support Hospices of Hope over the the coming months. [/b][/p][p]The support we have received in the past from friends and colleagues across the wonderful events industry and we can only express our gratitude to you all for getting us to the stage we are at now.[/p][p]It is even more important with all that is keeping us locked down at the moment to keep the support going as much as possible. We know that we are being supported by our fantastically talented 2019 winner, Megan Urwin of Successful Events and we all look forward to seeing her at our events in the coming months.[/p][p]Yes, we can't host an actual 'live' launch party nor organise 'live' auditions but we can start the fund-raising, even if it is only a little to start with. So, we ask all of you to keep supporting us and if you feel able, please just make a small donation to Hospices of Hope. There is so much call on all of us at the moment to support UK charities and in particularly those directly associated with the wonderful NHS, but I'm sure we can cover off all.[/p][p]We are also looking at ways where we can help raise funds online.[/p][p]We'll update you as and when we are ready to have our launch party and/or auditions but for the meanwhile thank you all for your support so far, your support in the future and Stay Safe[/p][p][br][/p]
