A BREAKDANCER will be putting his talents to the test at the national final of Tesco Distribution’s Got Talent in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Lewis Wells, 11 is representing Tesco Distribution Centre and will join 19 other acts from across the country to battle it out for a £1,000 prize at the gala fundraising event on Saturday at Daventry Court Hotel.
Lewis has already beaten off competition from other aspiring stars to reach this stage with his dance moves.
Staff, family and friends are able to play a role in deciding who is crowned the winner using a text to vote system in the run up, and on the night, which includes a £1 donation to Cancer Research UK.
Lewis said: “I have been dancing since I was six years old. Being taught different techniques and styles I have widened my dance style. I have competed in lots of different competitions around the world. I love to showcase my dance to people. I feel happy when I’m dancing and expressing my feelings.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in an exciting fundraising event, have fun and help support Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists beat cancer at the same time.”
Now in its second year the competition, which is open to Tesco Distribution staff and their family and friends, aims to raise an incredible £60,000. This will contribute towards the £10 million record target that Tesco staff across the country hope to hit for Cancer Research UK, Tesco Charity of the Year.
Their fundraising will help support research into improving the early diagnosis and detection of cancer, helping to ensure more people receive treatment at a time when it is more likely to be successful.
