CELEBRITIES JOIN FORCES TO RAISE FUNDS FOR BARNARDO’S
Mini Babybel Bounce for Barnardo’s Online Auction
Celebrities including Jeff Brazier, Chloe Sims, Eliza Doolittle and Georgia Salpa have come together to showcase their creative talents by customising spacehoppers as part of a national online auction to raise funds for children’s charity, Barnardo’s.
Live now, the auction on Ebay is part of the Mini Babybel ‘Bounce for Barnardo’s’ spacehopper charity activity, which recently saw a new World Record being set by a nine year old Londoner, Skylar Kelly. Skylar managed to bounce 50 metres on a spacehopper in an astounding 28.51 seconds at the recent Mini Babybel event, hosted by Jeff Brazier.
People at home can also get involved by biding for their favourite celebrity-designed spacehopper. And all funds will go directly to Barnardo’s to enable the charity to continue its mission to transform the lives of more than 190,000 children and young people in the UK each year.
Adorned with feathers, glitter, boggly eyes and even a bikini, each spacehopper has been personally designed by the following celebrities. But which celebrity spacehopper will fetch the most money for Barnardo’s?
Spacehopper’s have been customised by:
Jeff Brazier said of his hopper: “I really can’t take all the credit for my spacehopper design as my two boys might have helped me out! It was a great way to get the creative juices flowing and, anyone that gets involved in the auction will be helping to raise funds for a very worthwhile cause. So get bidding!”
