By on Friday, October 7, 2016

Two local stars in the making were crowned winners of Prescot’s Got Talent last Saturday (1 October).

Sadie Wilson stunned the crowd with her cover version of Beyonce’s ‘Listen’ to scoop first prize in the under-16s category, while Nichola Weston claimed victory among the adults singing the Shania Twain classic ‘Honey, I’m Home.’

Dozens of hopefuls auditioned earlier in the year to make the grand final. They faced a panel of judges that included Prescot business owner Rebecca Oakes, borough councillor Carl Cashman, Mayor of Prescot Cllr Dave Friar, dancer and singer Sam Moores, and heroic schoolgirl and activist Leah, who has inspired thousands of people by documenting her journey through leukaemia treatment on Facebook.

The event, which took place at the Prescot Palace in Prescot Community Church, raised over £600 for local charity the James Greenop Foundation.

Organiser Phil Sephton said that making Prescot’s Got Talent happen was “a pleasure,” adding that “it couldn’t have been done without all the volunteers, businesses and, of course, the acts!

“It really was a community event that everyone got involved in. I just wish all the acts could have won, as they were all brilliant.”
