Flashback to the last Charity Stars final and one of the big winners for Derian House Children's Hospice.

The big Charity Stars talent competition which aims to give away more than £3,000 in prizes to good causes is now in full swing.

Videos have been shared online for charities including Unique Kidz, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Care, UNICEF, and North West Blood Bikers.

The competition is run by the Furness Building Society in association with The Visitor, its sister paper Lancaster Guardian and The Bay radio.

Charity supporters and budding stars can record their performance on a smartphone, tablet, camera or computer now and upload their videos to get in on the act and appear in the live final at the Lancaster Grand Theatre on January 30 2016.

The top cash prize is £1,000 and every finalist takes away at least £100 for their charity.

The ultimate winner will also get their taste of fame by becoming a ‘Star for a Day at the Bay’ and record their own video and music session with the station.

A total of 12 finalists will be chosen to appear in the live show to compete for a share of the cash prizes.

A further two finalists will be chosen as ‘wild card’ entries by The Bay radio 
audience.

Singers, dancers, bands, choirs, comics, acrobats or novelty acts of all ages are all invited to take part and do something special for their chosen charity.
