Musical heroes to help Heroes

HAS Dove Holes got talent?

That’s the burning question being asked by the village’s carnival committee which is holding a talent night to raise funds for the charity Help For Heroes.

Organiser Sally Tideswell explained: “Our carnival king Damien Moss inspired us to do this, as his chosen charity is Help For Heroes.

“Damien joined the Royal Navy in September last year, and we also have had several other lads from the village who have joined the army and have had their own experiences in Afghanistan, some good and some not so good.

“We feel as a carnival committee that Dove can give something back to help our heroes.”

Organisers are looking for between eight and ten acts to perform at Dove Holes Community Centre on Saturday March 26, at 7.30pm. Entry for acts is free. Judging will be carried out by Bill Weston and High Peak Radio’s Leighton Morris.

First prize is £100 sponsored by Britannia Woodworking Company, plus a studio recording session worth £180 to put the winner’s recording onto CD, which will be featured on High Peak Radio.

A professional makeover and photo shoot is among the other prizes pledged.

To enter, contact Sally before the end of February on 07834 922133 or via the Dove Holes Carnival website

Admission to the talent show, either by advance ticket or on the door, will cost £3 and includes a free supper.

A raffle will also be running throughout the evening.
