On the Thursday the 6th of February the grand final for g for this year’s CHARM inter-schools event will take place. CHARM celebrates the talents and achievements of young people throughout Hyndburn. The event presents an excellent opportunity for young people to gain recognition for all their talents and achievements.
Our forum members have been planning the event and are determined to make it even bigger and better than last year. They have decided on their pre-show roles which include:
- Publicity and media
- Programme/ticket/poster design
- Event design
- Raffle prizes
They have also been thinking about what they would like their roles to be on the night. The whole event is planned and run by our 12 forum members, 2 from each secondary school in Hyndburn. They will run front of house, backstage and stage crew, sound and lighting and presenting on the night.
Schools have been invited to nominate the pupils from years 7-11, that they feel deserve an award for their achievements.
Our big celebration event is to be held at Oswaldtwistle Civic Theatre, awards will be given to the winner of each category. Judges will decide on a Young Person of the Year from all winners. This award is being kindly sponsored by Breaks Wealth Management.
Last year’s winner, Tyler Wright from Mount Carmel school was overwhelmed at winning the award in recognition of his great work in school and the local community, despite only having 6% vision
We are delighted to once again be working in collaboration with Carers Link Lancashire. As both of our charities rely on fundraising and donations, there’s also an award for the school that raises the most money leading up to the event. The Hollins walked away with this award last year, but competition is going to be fierce this year and they will have their work cut out to retain their title!
It’s shaping up to be a fantastic event. Tickets for the event are on sale now and available from Oswladtwistle Civic Theatre.
