Roll up, Roll up, CITV’s Sooty and Sweep have collaborated with TV personality Michelle Heaton in the kitchen for a fun packed short film to raise some dough for Sport Relief. The nation’s favourite bear has been ‘Izzy Wizzy’ baking cakes for a Sport Relief Bake Sale in a bid to inspire the nation to get their baking trays out and raise some money for Sport Relief. Meanwhile, Sweep has slipped on his boxing gloves to show his knockout support for Sport Relief. Sooty and Sweep’s new look is thanks to designer Orla Kiely, who has created a limited edition apron and two tea towels for Sport Relief. The apron and tea towels are available to buy exclusively from Sport Relief official partners: brands for less homeware retailer, HomeSense, TKMaxx stores, tkmaxx.com and sportrelief.com.
The apron retails at £12.99 with at least £5.25 going to Sport Relief. Remember, there is still time to organise and host a bake sale to raise money for Sport Relief, so check out this nifty Bake Off Kit for everything you need: www.sportrelief.com/bakeoff kit and buy all your baking kit and caboodle at
HomeSense and TK Maxx stores.
The nation has been inspired to join in the Sport Relief fun and games and host their own bake sales to raise money to help transform people’s lives both across the UK and in the world’s poorest communities.
So if you’re a fan, the apron is the perfect way to ‘rise to the occasion’, supporting a great cause whilst baking yourself proud in the kitchen. Sooty’s right hand man, Richard Cadell told us Sooty had whispered in his ear that holding a bake sale is a piece of cake and he and Sweep had loads of fun with their new friend Michelle, even if she was a little bit messy in the kitchen!
Michelle Heaton said: “I urge everyone to put on a pinny, get baking and throw a showstopping bake sale for Sport Relief. Baking with Sooty & Sweep was the icing on the cake for me! By purchasing this apron from HomeSense and TK Maxx you can help to transform people’s lives both across the UK and in the world’s poorest communities.”
Since 2002, Sport Relief has raised over £262 million. The Sport Relief Games will take place between Friday 18th and Sunday 20th March, bringing the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. The money raised from the apron will go towards helping people living incredibly tough
lives. Half of the money raised by the public for Sport Relief is used to make a difference right here at home in the UK, with the other half used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities.
