Win a chance to perform at The O2

The biggest fundraisers will have a bonus chance to dance at the grand final.

Every act that raises and submits at least £1,000 by noon on Monday 25 June will be entered into the Platinum Fundraising Award draw.

The winning entry chosen at random will be invited to perform at indigo at The O2 in London along with the finalists.

The Platinum Fundraising Award winner will perform as a guest, unless they also won a local heat. You won’t be taking part in the competition. But this chance to shine at one of London’s most famous venues is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
