Phil Gallagher and Simon Dolby promote the KM Charity Walk

Phil Gallagher and Simon Dolby promote the KM Charity Walk

My friends Phil and Simon have been rather noisy and silly this week. To help tell everyone about the annual KM Charity Walk, which is a big walk where people raise sponsor money for their favourite charity, they have been doing all sorts of funny walking. Look at the picture and you can see what I mean!

I suppose it did get them noticed and a special photographer came to take photos of them for the newspaper because of it, but I was a bit embarrassed 🙁

Phil – Phil Gallagher – is the famous man from the TV programme Mister Maker, but lots of people will know him from appearing in panto at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury and because he is Honorary Patron of the KM Charity Team. This year Phil will be Muddles in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Marlowe. I have a very important job too as I will be helping Phil to learn his script!

Teddy bear winning photo

Liam and Tigger – I love this photo!

Simon runs the KM Charity Team and one of his events is this big sponsored walk. Did you know the event started 20 years ago, so this year will be a big anniversary. so lots of fun things will be happening – you really should go and do the walk!

Lots of you have been sending in your photos of favourite teddies and cuddly toys and I have decided the photo I like the best is of Liam Parker and Tigger from Ashford. I have posted Liam a Build-a-Bear voucher to reward him for such a nice photo and those nice people at the KM Group have said they will probably also put the photo in the newspaper too!

I still have some more Build-a-Bear vouchers so send me in your photos and maybe you will win the next prize!  Click on the ‘Enter Here’ link on the right of this page to submit your pic.
