Brit Award winning Chart Toppers, JLS and a host of the nation’s best loved and well-known house-hold names have pledged their support to children and young people with cancer, by providing a recorded message for Teddy Bears, all to be auctioned as part of the CLIC Sargent ‘Care With A Bear’ eBay campaign.
Each bear has been given a celebrity voice-box and plays a special message for its lucky owner when you cuddle it and squeeze its tummy. The JLS boys, Marvin, Aston, JB and Oritse have each individually recorded a unique message, which is sure to have fans crashing the eBay site to bid for their favourite JLS member’s bear.
Other top celebrities who have lent their voice to the campaign include Ed Sheeran, Ricky Gervais, Graham Norton, Dermot O’Leary, Tess Daly and Robbie Savage as well as national treasures, Sir Cliff Richard and Cilla Black. Sporting hero Steven Gerrard has also backed the campaign, all in the name of improving the lives of young cancer patients.
Enthusiastic fans eager to get their paws on their favourite celebrity bear can go online to bid from Thursday 18 October until Sunday 28 October (7.30pm until 7.30pm) via the CLIC Sargent eBay store. All money raised will help CLIC Sargent to provide vital emotional, practical and financial support to children and young people with cancer and their families.
Commenting on the launch of the ‘Care with a Bear’ campaign, CLIC Sargent Head of Retail, Jeremy Lune said, “The CLIC Sargent ‘Care with a Bear’ campaign is a fantastic opportunity for die-hard fans to claim a unique, one-off collectible of their favourite British celebrity’s voice. I have no doubt that eBay users will flock to our online shop in a bid to ensure they claim the keepsake that is surely one of the bare essentials to any dedicated fans collection of memorabilia”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the celebrities who were kind enough to help with the project and offer special appreciation to TV actress Joanna Taylor who helped make the project a success. Without their support we wouldn’t be able to offer the level of support we do to young cancer patients and their families”.
