Yorkshire’s Got Talent

The stars were out for the recent Yorkshire Has Talent contest held at the Engine Shed in Wetherby.

Cast members of Emmerdale judged the finalists at the fundraiser to help young mum Gemma Newman who suffered a severe bleed to the brain in May 2014.

The money raised will go to her ongoing recovery after she was left with profound weakness to the right of her body.

Spokesman for the fundraisers Sue Bowes said: “The evening was a huge success and enjoyed by all who attended, including our four Emmerdale judges - Charlotte Bellamy, John Middleton, Mark Charnock and Katherine Dow Blyton - who gave up their time to help this extremely worthy cause.

Following two rounds of auditions held in December, 12 acts made it to the final with the winner being voted for by the Emmerdale judges.

And 11-year-old singer, Kaci won the talent contest with runner up Beth Stevens winning the audience vote.

“We would like to thank everybody who attended and for their generous support.”
