Newfield's Got Talent: Castleford care home to host Children in Need talent show
and live on Freeview channel 276
Open to the local community, Newfield Lodge will be busting out the karaoke machine from 10.30am until 12.30pm for people to show off their talent and fundraise for BBC Children in Need.
Last year, Newfield Lodge managed to raise more than £400 for the charity with a sponsored walk around the care home’s gardens and it hopes to raise even more this year.
Joyce Paver, 86 was one resident who took part in last year’s sponsored walk. She said: “Raising money for Children in Need is very important as they give children a chance to get the help they need.”
Lynn Robinson, general manager and karaoke lover, added: “Children in Need is a charity that has always been very close to our hearts, and our residents always get stuck into fundraising each year.
“We have lots of talent at Newfield Lodge, so we hope lots of people come along and join us for a fun sing-along to support this extremely worthy cause.”
All are welcome to join Newfield Lodge for “Newfield Lodge’s Got Talent”, which will take place in the home on Brookfield Avenue in Castleford.
Anybody who would like to donate to the “Newfield Lodge’s Got Talent” fundraiser can do so on its JustGiving page.
