Stockton Mayor Pays Tribute to the Stars of Autism’s Got Talent


Sep 21, 2016

“Another astonishingly good evening…” that was the view of one parent as he left the Autism’s Got Talent show in Stockton last weekend.

Norton-based autism charity Daisy Chain and their patron Anna Kennedy OBE, autism campaigner, put the performance together.

It was was held at Arc in Stockton and the venue was packed with around two hundred friends and family of the performers. All the acts demonstrated that autism isn’t a barrier for them as they showcased their many varied skills and talents.

Singers, dancers and musicians all entertained the audience that included the Mayor, councillor Ken Dixon and his Mayoress wife Linda. At the end of the show he congratulated all those who had taken part and handed each a certificate.

It was a wonderful night, the array of talent on display blew everyone away reaching a climax when all the acts joined together on stage for the grand finale resulting in a massive standing ovation.

“We didn’t think we could top last year but we did,” said Katy Carmen Daisy Chain fundraising and communications manager. “We want to thank Anna for helping us put on such a show, Ann Barkas Consulting for sponsoring the event and the Arc for their professional support.”
