Children’s charity ‘Barnado’s’ has enlisted the help of ‘Love Actually’star Emma Thompson and comedian Catherine Tate for their ‘Fifteen Minutes With Fame’ prize draw.
Emma is offering fans the chance to enjoy a drink with her, while Catherine will put on a ‘Doctor Who’ quiz.
Entry to the draw costs $11 and Emma said: “Barnardo’s is an amazing charity that needs the public’s help now more than ever”.
Lennie James, Russell Howard and Jamie Vardy are also offering calls with the public.
A statement from Barnardo’s said: “If you’ve ever dreamed of hobnobbing with a Hollywood star, putting an England striker through their paces or proving you’re the world’s number one Doctor Who fan then you’re in luck because Barnardo’s is making dreams come true.
“The leading children’s charity has teamed up with some of the UK’s most loved stars to help banish the lockdown blues with its Fifteen Minutes with Fame prize draw.
“Winners really can have a cocktail with Dame Emma Thompson, banter with Russell Howard or a chat about the beautiful game with Jamie Vardy.
“If quizzing is more your thing then why not prove your status as the world’s number one Walking Dead fan with Lennie James aka Morgan Jones as your quiz master. Or prove you are a true Whovian with Catherine Tate and her themed Doctor Who Quiz.”
Barnardo’s Chief Executive Javed Khan said: “The vulnerable children Barnardo’s supports need us now more than ever. We’re working round the clock to adapt our vital services, so we can continue to help children and families – whether face to face, on the phone or through an App.
