Our Aims

At Rotary Interact at Braintree Sixth Form, we are raising money for 2 charities.

Global Polio Eradication Initiative, whose main objective is to get rid of Polio in the world. At the moment, only three countries are left to be vaccinated; Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. However, the virus can re-establish itself in other countries that were once Polio-free and that is what has happened in Chad, Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The GPER is constantly working to ensure that children and adults in the third world can live a life free from the worries Polio brings. To read more about them and their work, please visit:

Scott Hardy Foundation, set up in 2010 to support the families of members of the Armed forces who have either died while serving or as a result of injuries that they had gotten while serving. The Foundation helps these families financially, by raising money to help the families cope with the costs of the funerals and repatriation. The Foundation gives people such a huge amount of support in their difficult times and has had a lasting, positive impact to all the families the Foundation has reached.

Important Information for Entrants

It is important that anyone who wish to audition have their materials ready. This means that all songs/backing tracks must be available on either a CD or USB. If it is on a USB stick, the file must be in the format of an MP3. For those that intend to sing, please make sure that your CD/USB file only contains the background music of your choice and does not include the artist singing.


If instruments are available at your school for auditions, that is fine. However, if there are none available, you must use your own instruments. If you proceed to the next stages of the competition, please be aware that you must supply your own instruments and equipment for your act as we are unable to do so.

Thank you
