Former Emmerdale star Danny Miller (pictured left) has been promoting his charity 'Once Upon A Smile's special fundraiser weekend!
The soap star who is best known for his role as mechanic Aaron Livesy on the ITV1 soap established the charity which aims to support families who have lost a parent or child through respite breaks and financial assistance, along with friend Daniel Jillings in 2011.
In order to aid the work of the organisation, a 'Raise A Smile' fundraising weekend is taking place this weekend (23rd to 25th November) and aims to encourage everyone to fundraise or donate to the charity.
Donating is so easy, you can donate directly via the charity's just giving page here or you can also donate via text. To donate via text, text RSWE99 plus donation amount (£1, £2, £3, £4, £5, or £10) to 70070
In order to raise money, a signed caricature portrait of Danny and Daniel, along with the charity mascot Sidley is available to bid for on Ebay. To bid, click this link.
Speaking about the charity fundraising weekend, Miller said: ''I am extremely excited about the Raising Smiles weekend. I think it's a fabulous way to raise much needed funds for our charity whilst having endless fun throughout the weekend. We would like as many people as possible to support our event and for the support we have received I would like to thank everyone."
Daniel Jillings added: ''Raising Smiles is an excellent way for our supporters to help us during what is normally a quiet period in our year. We as a charity would not be where we are today without the help and dedication of each and everyone of our supporters. We want to create a weekend to remember whilst raising the profile of our charity."
Daniel took over Manchester's Tameside Radio along with celebrity patrons such as Elliot Tittensor, Jack McMullen and Ashley Margolis today and a charity football game is to be held on Sunday at the new Stockport Sports Village where the celebrity 'Once Upon A Smile' team will take on the Life Leisure XI. Tickets are £5 for adults and £2 for kids!
TellyMix would like to take the opportunity to wish both Daniel and Danny all the best with their 'Raise A Smile' fundraiser weekend!
