Sparkling celebrities have joined a Thornbury charity's fundraising campaign.

Masker Singer presenter and comedian Joel Dommett, who was born in Rockhampton, his model wife Hannah Cooper, and Bristol comedian Jayde Adams are among those encouraging people to join in with Brain Tumour Support's Sparkle Up Your Day campaign on Friday (October 1).

Joel and Hannah know firsthand about the charity's work, as Hannah's mother was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the end of last year.

They said: “We love the idea of Sparkle Up Your Day. Everyone needs something sparkly in their life and what better way to support the amazing work that Brain Tumour Support does.

“We'll be getting our glitter out for Sparkle Day and we can't wait to see photos of lots of sparkly outfits and events.

“We know first-hand just how valuable and needed the services that Brain Tumour Support provide are. But the charity desperately needs the funds to be able to reach out to the many people who currently lack any support. What better way than Sparkle to support an amazing cause and also have some fun at the same time.”

In 2020, the Sparkle Up Your Day campaign raised funds to help people access free support sessions.

The importance of the support is summed up by Gabrielle, who regularly attends the online groups and said: "These sessions are a life-changer for me."

Brain Tumour Support receives no statutory funding or major sponsorship for its work, making donations and campaigns such as Sparkle Up Your Day particularly important.

Tina Mitchell Skinner, CEO of Brain Tumour Support, said: “The Sparkle campaign is a great opportunity to really let your imagination run riot. Whether you get friends round for tea and sparkly cakes, dress up for a walk or run, get your pets involved, or anything else, you’ll be having fun and raising essential funds!”

Tina added: “This has been a tough year for us, as for many charities, and the Sparkle campaign will raise much needed funds to allow us to continue to provide help and support to people diagnosed as well as their families across the UK.”

“We welcome business support through corporate fundraising, charity of the year events, or corporate fundraising pledges. We are thrilled to announce our first two headline partners, personalised printing specialists Prinster and bespoke clothing embroidery and garment printers, Westcoast Workwear & Embroidery, and we welcome approaches and ideas from other organisations who’d like to further Brain Tumour Support’s work and to include us in their corporate social responsibility and altruism campaigns.”
