A celebration of talent took place on Saturday 29th November 2014 at The Stanley Institute in Burscough and turned up some hidden gems. The variety of the programme included all levels of age and and disability. Participants included entrants from the people who live within Stocks Hall, staff, family and friends of Stocks Hall Care Homes in Ormskirk, Skelmersdale, Burscough, St. Helens and Nelson – all of whom came together to perform a spectacular show.
More than 60 people, including family and friends, clapped, cheered and watched the array of talent showcased at the ‘Got Talent’ event on Saturday. The acts included performances such as singing, dancing, comedy sketches and even an apperance by Stocks Hall’s St Helens version of the Spice Girls!
The judges of the event said it was a difficult decision to choose the winner from the wealth of talent. The event was won by Poppy Potter, she sang a beautiful version of the song “Everytime” by Britany Spears. Second prize was awarded to Joan Fairclough, who lives at Stocks Hall St Helens and performed the song “Edelweiss” and third prize being awarded to Stocks Hall Ormskirk Residents Choir, who sang “Silent Night”.
Stocks Hall Care Homes were honoured and delighted that the Mayor of West Lancashire, Councillor Doreen Stephenson and the Mayor’s Consort John Stephenson, came along and supported the wonderful ‘Stocks Got Talent’ 2014 event.
Director of Stocks Hall Care Homes Sue Lace says “I am so proud of everyone who took part and supported this fantastic event. It was a privilege to be part of this very special day and celebrate the amazing talent within the Stocks Hall Group.”
