Banbury princess-a-thon

Have you ever dreamed of being a princess? Well for two Banbury residents this will become a reality, as they ditch their every day clothes and dress as princesses for the day to support young cancer patients.

Banbury princess-a-thon

Mum of two Jemma Hibberd, 29, and performing arts student Bridie, 18, will be going about their normal days in full makeup and costume, raising awareness of the work of CLIC Sargent.

The pair are no strangers to dressing up as both work together at the children’s entertainment company Bee Imaginative Parties & Events. The company creates magical birthday parties, designed to have a wonderful and special effect on a child’s day, week, or even their year!

Just a normal day

Jemma said: “It will be just a normal day: a trip to the local supermarket, lunch out, taking the bus, cleaning the house, gardening; all dressed as a princess!

“I have been inspired to take on this challenge because of a brave little girl who has recently finished all of her gruelling treatment.

“My job is a magical one to have. Being able to raise money for a children’s cancer charity by doing what we do best is just fantastic!”

The event is planned for Saturday 16 April in Banbury town centre, so if you see Cinderella and Rapunzel around town please feel free to say hello and take a photo or two with them!
