Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) is calling on talented Scots to help save the organisation with a virtual fundraising event. To help raise vital funds, SBH Scotland will host its first virtual event ‘Sunday Night Social - Live’ on Sunday 07 June and is now looking for the people of Scotland to take part in a featured talent show.
The event will be hosted by renowned entertainer and Britain’s Got Talent finalist Edward Reid via video link and London west end star, John Mclarnon, will also be on hand to entertain on the evening.
Those aged 16 and above (or under 16s if performing with a larger group which includes over 16s) are being encouraged to send in films of themselves performing their talents, whether its singing, dancing, acrobatics, stand-up or more. Those chosen to feature in the show will have an excerpt of their audition shown at the start of the show. Then it's up to the public to vote via a text message that will donate £1 to the charity! The winning audition will receive a Prize Voucher, their audition will be shown in full at the end of the show and they will go on to win the chance of performing at one of SBH Scotland's big social events when they start again in 2021!

Deborah Roe, fundraising director at SBH Scotland said: “The cancellation of fundraising events across the country has had a devastating impact on the third sector. At SBH Scotland we receive little statutory support and the challenge ahead of us is incredibly difficult.
“Life in lockdown can be unsettling for everyone, especially for those who require extra support in their day-to-day lives. Our Sunday Night Social is about getting together – albeit virtually – and having a good time, whilst also helping our staff and volunteers continue to provide support to those who need it most.
“This event is the first in what we hope can be a series of monthly get-togethers. We've taken the excitement, entertainment and production values of our large scale events and taken them online for the ultimate Sunday night in. We know that there are some exceptionally talented people in Scotland who will be looking to show off their skills and this event will be the perfect forum for that. So, please join us by sending in videos of your talents, no matter how silly or funny they are!”
