Supporting the Y factor

Easter Saturday saw the final of the Fort Cancer Charity Y FACTOR which took place in Thorngate Hall, Gosport. After months and months of judging such incredible performances at last the final had arrived, all seats were taken. On this occasion the judges sat back and enjoyed the music, Terry Powell from Express FM and myself had been to every stage of the competition, the team at Dashwood & Denyer funeral directors of Portsmouth & Southsea had an amazing time and thrilled to have been asked in the first place to judge.

The singers age range was from twelve up too the late thirties. The talent was outstanding and first class entertainment. It was a difficult task for the audience to choose, this year the public were able to vote on line. It had been such a wonderful event to take part in none of us wanted it to end. Finally the winner was announced, Bella from Gosport (the eldest in the competition) was taken by surprise as being the winner. A good time was had by all and new friends were made and the most important thing of all 7,500 was raised for Fort Cancer.
