Gentoo is looking for businesses to support the Genfactor 2017

Gentoo’s Genfactor competition is back. This is the ninth year the talent competition has taken place and 13 talented acts from Sunderland will take the stage this December.

Organised by housing association, Gentoo, this talent competition is designed to give young people the opportunity to showcase their talents. By taking part they learn new skills, meet new people and gain confidence by performing in front of a live audience.

 The event will be held at Rainton Meadows Arena on 6 December from 6pm.  A number of businesses are already supporting this community initiative this year including Gentoo Homes, Sunderland City Council, Ashmore, Grundfos and Sunderland’s Business Improvement District.

If you are a local business and would like to sponsor an act for £500, enjoy a night of entertainment and an evening meal please contact Kelly Gleadow, Communications Manager on 0191 525 5546 or email
