Have you got a talent you want to share with the local community?

Movers & Shakers, an afterschool club run by national disability charity United Response, are calling on Leatherhead residents to sign up for a school talent show, a free event for everyone in the area.

Surrey’s Got Talent will be held at Woodlands School in Leatherhead on May 22nd from 4-6pm, and charity United Response are holding the event for people of all talents, ages and abilities.

The Movers & Shakers afterschool club, which began operating in partnership with United Response in 2012 to support disabled children in the area, is hosting the event, with prizes available for the winning act.

The afterschool club applied to United Response’s Small Sparks programme, funded by the Clothworkers’ Foundation, for funding to hold a community talent show. It is hoped that locals will get involved in the fun while offering attendees of the club a chance to meet new people.

Paula Elderton, development and project coordinator at United Response, said: “We’re really grateful to Small Sparks for making this event possible, giving children with disabilities the opportunity to make connections within their community and those with profound disabilities the chance to take part in stimulating activities.

“The show hopes to raise funds to maintain the Movers & Shakers club while offering a chance to meet new people and have a good time.”

Small Sparks aims to provide opportunities to fund a variety of activities to strengthen relationships between disabled people and the wider community.

Head Teacher of the school, Adrienne Knight and Assistant Head Gill Lloyd, will be channelling their inner Simon Cowell’s as judges of the show, though no auditions are required and all talents are welcome.

To help fundraise for the club, United Response will be selling refreshments and treats on the day.
