Inspire Cheshire West has closed. Thank you to everyone who took part. Your contributions, stories, ideas and experiences about life under lockdown restrictions were a valuable resource to the communities of west Cheshire.

Chester's Grandparents have got talent.

Throughout the current health crisis Apollo Care Chester have been carrying out a number voluntary services for the local community. This has enabled us to get more involved with the community whilst offering support and has also given us a profound awareness of how difficult things have been during the Covid-19 pandemic, especially for the elderly and the local charities that support them.

This prompted us to look at how we could do something to raise the spirits of our elderly communities and also raise funds and awareness for the Hospice of The Good Shepherd. So we came up with the idea to host a talent show for the elderly, called “Chester’s Grandparents Have Got Talent”.

This is a virtual talent show in which we ask people to send their entries to us of themselves or their Grandparents (or suchlike) of their talents, whether it may be playing the spoons, or crooning along to one of their favourite Frank Sinatra songs, then simply send it to us with an entry fee of £2.00, that will be paid directly to the Hospice of the Good Shepherd.

We will then send the entries to our three distinguished judges, namely Matt Baker, music composer and director, Gavin Matthews from Dee Radio and the Lord Mayor of Chester… we decided not to ask Simon Cowell!

We also have three great prizes for our winners – 1st £75.00 2nd Champagne & Chocolate Hamper 3rd Gardener’s Gift Basket, kindly donated by Hotel Chocolat, Grosvenor Garden Centre and Apollo Care Chester.

The aim is to put some positivity back into people’s lives and keep our communities connected whilst helping an amazing cause, so we would love to get as many people as possible involved.

If you would like to help raise spirits as well as help this wonderful charity raise funds and awareness then take a look at the link below.
