It’s time to get your talents to a wider audience while raising money for a local charity in lockdown.
Little Miracles, which puts on sessions and days for children with a disability in Spalding, has launched an online talent competition.
The charity is unable to hold its usual events and fundraisers, so it’s looking for people to send in videos of their talents along with a £5 donation.
A Facebook page has been set up to host the videos and the one with the most reactions will win a prize.
The idea is the brainchild of Lindsey Swift, two of whose sons, George (6) and Jack (11) are autistic and attend many of the days out Little Miracles puts on.
“It’s a fantastic help for children and we love going on the days out,” said Lindsey who lives in Fleet. “Even during lock down they’ve been sending out craft packs for the children to keep them active.
“At the moment they have no income.
“I couldn’t sleep one night thinking about it and I think I’d been watching Britain’s Got Talent that night when the idea came to me.”
There’s two categories, one for over 18s and one for under 18s.
You can upload your videos to the We’ve Got Talent page via Little Miracles’s own Facebook page.
You can also upload them to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for entries is next Wednesday (May 20) with the videos set to be posted the following Friday.
They will be there to view until May 29 and the video with the most reactions will win.
Lindsey said: “We’re going to do prizes of a box of toys bundle for the children and a treats hamper for the adults.
“If anybody enters an animal we’ll get them treats for that particular animal too.
“We’ve already had a few entries and we’re looking for a few more.”
