Stars in Your Eyes fundraiser won by Craig Clark

The FRCA annual Stars in Your Eyes fundraising event attracted a record audience of around 200 people who crammed into the Charleston Club on Friday 12th November to witness the crowning of the new Champion Craig Clark. Suported by his son Kieran on drums, Craig, as KISS's Gene Simmons, performed "Rock and Roll All Nite" winning the vote by a narrow margin over Lisa Billany as Lady GaGa.

The event has grown from it's humble beginnings in 2008, to one which people now put in their diaries at the begining of each year, and it provides the charity with extra funding which is used to keep workshops running and enables us to develop new ideas alongside the young people who access FRCA.

This year as well as Craig and Kieran, and of course Lisa, who's performance as Lady GaGa supported by dancers Kelsie and Michael, other performs on the night were; the fantastic Molly Brown, our 2009 winner who performed New York by Elisha Keys, Iain Thompson who was Stevie Wonder with "Sir Duke", Jon and Danny became Jedwood for the night with a cracking routine with "Under Pressue", Lou Kerry was a brilliant Blondie with "One Way or Another", Dusty Spingfield made an appearance through newcomer to the competition Jill Thompson, and to start the evening off Katie and Paula were 80's girl duo Mel and Kim with a routine that got the party started in style.

A special mention must also go to the Band who put in loads of time and effort, and without whom this night wouldn't be posssible. So to Robbo, Andy, Dave, Iain and Lou, Thank you. Thanks must also go to our hosts for the evening Dan, Jack and Paul and to our magical entertainment "Magic James" and "Paul.

And to all those that attended and supported the evening Thank you to you too!
