Nescot's Got Talent show to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust

Business students are holding a talent show to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The Level 3 group are hosting the second annual Nescot’s Got Talent competition in the college’s Adrian Mann Theatre from 12-4pm on Thursday (November 6), after two weeks of auditions.

Acts competing to win the title this year include a singer-songwriter, breakdancer and mime artist, with the top three acts winning £50, £25 and £10 Love to Shop vouchers respectively.

"The project has been hard work so far, but we’re looking forward to the show on Thursday," said Oliver Swann-Wright, who was chosen to lead the project.

"It’s been a good experience of things like delegating, team work, compromising and communicating, and I think we’ll learn a lot during the live show."

The project is part of the students' Managing a Business Event unit, and they have been responsible for aspects ranging from designing posters to promote the event to presenting on the day.

They also went into classes to speak about the open auditions held last month, as well as holding a cake sale, five-a-side football tournament and raffle, with winning numbers to be drawn on Thursday.

The students have already raised more than £400 for the Teenage Cancer Trust and sold about 130 tickets, and are optimistic about beating the £500 raised by last year’s Level 3 students.

Tickets to watch Nescot’s Got Talent are £1 each, and the audience members will be able to vote for their favourite act.

"I’m quite nervous, but we’ve worked really hard so far and we’ve done as much as we can to prepare," said Thomas Dervish, who is presenting the show with Sienna Roye.

"This has definitely been the best unit on the course so far – I’ve been looking forward to it since last year and trying to think of ways to build on what the previous students did last year."
