A grand fundraiser

The Talent Show here at Hutchie never fails to entertain and this year’s ‘Totally Tropical’ extravaganza raised just over £1000.

There was a huge amount of Hutchie talent on stage last week which made the judging job extremely difficult. But Head of Drama, Mrs Alderson, Caroline Watson, from the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, and Head Boy Callum Young were up to the task.

The judging panel decided to aware Best Solo Act to Samantha Brodie (S6), Best Group Act to Adam Tobias and Andrew Osipov (both S5), Most Entertaining Act to Lorna Fraser (S6), and the Best Overall Act to Ross McMillan (S6) for his impressive performance of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’.

The Organising Committee had a lot of fun planning the event and successfully secured sponsorship to cover the cost of staging the event. Thanks to Dave Curle of Powerhouse Pro Audio Visual, Henrys Honda and Platinum Hair and Beauty for supporting the Talent Show.

The six hosts entertained the audience with their witty comments between acts, and the committee also performed a group act, lip syncing to ‘We’re All in This Together’ from High School Musical!

To help with our fundraising the committee sold raffle tickets, with star prizes donated by Ollie’s and Urban Brasserie. A Bake Sale was also held during the interval with donations from members of staff. A total of £1,055 was raised.
