Stars Donate Their Disney Memories For GOSH
Michael Caine and more kick off the campaign to help the children's hospital…
A host of stars including Thandie Newton, Lewis Hamilton, Mel C, Ben Price, Fay Ripley and Dermot O’Leary have joined Disney Junior in a bid to collect a million Disney memories in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
The public are being asked to get involved too by heading over to www.facebook.com/disneyjunioruk and donating their first Disney memory to the campaign, which Disney will turn into £1million for the hospital when they hit the magic number of 1,000,000 memories.
Sir Michael Caine says: “I remember crying my eyes out when Bambi died and laughing my head off at the Seven Dwarfs. My favourite Disney villain? The Wicked Witch in Snow White. My First hero was Mickey Mouse and he’s my favourite.”
Sophie Ellis-Bextor says: “I remember watching Mary Poppins over and over and over when I was five or six. Even now I could probably turn down the sound and recite all the songs.
"I think Disney is something that we’ve all grown up with and it’s so nice now, being a parent, that my two sons can enjoy all the characters that I have enjoyed, so we share it together.
Disney Junior’s Million Disney Memories campaign was created following new research, which found that 92% of UK parents and grandparents believe memories of Disney characters stay with you for life and more than half of the British Public have shared their own Disney memories with their family.
Mel C who ‘donated’ her memory says: “I think Disney is something that we’ve all grown up with and it’s so nice now, being a parent, that my daughter can enjoy all the characters that I have enjoyed, so we share it together.
"Getting involved is really simple – you tell Disney Junior your memory and once they have collected a million, these memories will turn into money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. It’s a great cause so I urge everyone to share their Disney memories to help us reach our target.”
