Distribution's Got Talent
Saturday 4 February saw Lewis Clay beat 10 other finalists at the grand final of Distribution’s Got Talent in front of 350 people. The event raised a magnificent £51,000 for Alzheimer’s Society. The winner, representing Weybridge depot, received £1000 and will perform at the Staff Fundraising Awards on 25 April.
“It puts the whole thing into perspective when you realise what a difference we all made in supporting Alzheimer’s Society.” Lewis Clay.
Text voting began two weeks before and continued on the night. The act with the most votes was automatically in the final sing off. An amazing 8,985 votes were cast with 100% of each £1 text going to the charity. Lewis took that place, and performed again alongside Michelle Norton, 20, representing Daventry Clothing and Jessica Gordon, 13, representing Widnes.
The final decision however lay in the hands of the five judges, including Boyzone’s Shane Lynch and eighties pop star David Van Day. Head judge Nigel Jones, Director of Distribution, said: “The whole Distribution team were touched by the personal nature of this charity and how so many people are affected and were determined to really make a difference.”
