Catching up with Kirsty

Kirsty for GoodThis week we’ve been catching up with our very special ambassador – Kirsty Ashton, MBE. It’s been a very busy and exciting time for Kirsty. For one, her story was featured in the October issue of OK! Take a look below if you missed it.

Last month, Kirsty held her Black & White ball which was hugely successful and raised a staggering £60,000 for When You Wish Upon a Star. Over 340 people attended, including Will Mellor, Nikki Sanderson and members of the Hollyoaks cast. We were also in attendance and had a great time, read more about the event and see some photos here.

Kirsty is not one to rest and is now putting all her efforts in to her next event – a sponsored Spookathon. Not fazed by darkness or creepy noises, Kirsty plans to spend the night in a haunted house. If you want to sponsor Kirsty, head over to her Everyclick donation page and make a secure payment: www.everyclick.com/kirstyforgood

Kirsty is also already ahead of the game and thinking about her Christmas gifts this year. Of course, Kirsty will be doing all her shopping through Give as you Live and in so doing, raising money for When You Wish Upon A Star. If you’re stuck for gift ideas for your friends and family, why not head over to our Pinterest page, we where have a range of different gift guides for nearly everyone? We will be pretty surprised if you can’t find something on there! Remember to shop through Kirsty for good, to help Kirsty on her fundraising mission.
