Following on from the fun and fundraising success of its Bathroom Singer of the Year competition last year, Twyford is running the competition again. This year, it’s in partnership with regional radio station, Signal Radio, to raise money to support disadvantaged local children.
The competition has been given a strong local focus, with participation open to anyone living in Staffordshire and Cheshire with all funds raised going to Help a Signal Child, run by Signal Radio to support disadvantaged children across these two counties. Operating for 31 years, the fund has provided play equipment, wheelchairs and minibuses to deserving individuals and organisations.
Signal radio presenters will be joining in with their own performances, as well as giving the competition heavy promotion on air during the four week period. It will be promoted across Signal 1 and Signal 2 radio stations, owned by UTV, which have an audience reach of over 300,000 listeners.
The competition kicks off on Monday 31st August and runs till the 20th September and donations can be made at any time during the competition. Entrants are invited to upload their two minute video song to the website www.twyfordbathroomsinger.co.uk and this year have the choice of a ‘serious’ or ‘silly’ category. The voting opens on Monday 21st September and people can cast votes for their favourites up until Sunday 27th September. The winner of each category will then be announced on Monday 28th September.
Twyford has donated £1,000 for starters to the fund, and the two winners can choose a full Twyford bathroom suite from the company’s current collections.
Says Ilaria Genovese, press and events co-ordinator at Twyford:
“We are focusing more on the local region this year, so we are urging as many people as possible from Staffordshire and Cheshire to get singing and donating for this great cause. You can have fun and help local children at the same time.
“Even those who don’t want to sing can watch the fun unfold online at www.twyfordbathroomsinger.co.uk and make a donation in return for the sheer entertainment value. With the confidence he gained from winning last year’s competition, local teacher Chris Rawlinson has gone on to perform regularly at local venues and has never looked back!”
The competition will also be promoted via Twyford’s social media with the hashtag #twyfordsinger2015. Donations can be made online via the website www.twyfordbathroomsinger.co.uk.
