Girls Aloud singers Cheryl Cole and Kimberley Walsh, Take That's Gary Barlow, Radio 1 DJs Chris Moyles and Fearne Cotton, pop singers Alesha Dixon and Ronan Keating and TV presenters Denise Van Outen and Ben Shephard will climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to raise money for Comic Relief this month. The team has already raised more than £78,000.
Actors Andrew Lancel and Gary Lucy from ITV1 police soap The Bill won £50,000 for charity on Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? last month. They split their winnings between Dreamflight, which provides seriously ill and disabled children with holidays, and Haven House Children's Hospice in London.
Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan backed the Sheffield Children's Hospital Charity's rebrand and relaunch as the Children's Hospital Charity earlier this month.
Supports: The National Lottery Awards
Snowdon, the 95.8 Capital FM breakfast show host, who came third with dance partner Brendan Cole in the most recent series of BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing, helped to launch the National Lottery Awards 2009 earlier this month.
Projects that have received National Lottery funding in the past are eligible to enter the awards. Those that make it to the finals will be featured in a primetime BBC1 show later this year, in which they will also have a chance to win £2,000.
"Each week, lottery players raise £25m for good causes," says Snowdon. "The awards are a great way to show players where funding goes as well as recognising and celebrating the hard work, talent and amazing dedication of those involved in running lottery-funded projects."
