End Polio Now, whose main objective is to get rid of Polio in the world. Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, and funds are needed to protect children from this disease to ensure that children, in excess of 10 million, do not grow up with a chance of becoming paralysed in the next 40 years. Due to their work, and similar organisations, the number of Polio endemic countries has reduced from 125 in 1988 to only 3 NOW.

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.
