Little Stars Party
The sheer volume of nominations received for the Little Star Awards means that we are unable to invite every Little Star to the annual party.
Brave youngsters from throughout the UK are chosen as ambassadors to represent all the Little Star nominees. Earlier this year, 20 such ambassadors – along with their brothers and sisters - were the special guests at the 2012 Cancer Research UK Little Star Awards party at ZSL London Zoo.
The event, held in partnership with TK Maxx, brought together families to represent all the 410 children nominated for a Little Star Award during the 2011-12 campaign.
The youngsters (including six-year old Rose Kelly pictured above with TV presenter Zoe Salmon) met a host of celebrities at the event including soul singing sensation Lemar, TV presenters and former Blue Peter hosts Zoe Salmon and Konnie Huq, actor and TV presenter Joe Swash, Lydia Bright and Debbie Douglas from The Only Way is Essex and ex-EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison who played Heather Trott.
There were even special performances from Same Difference and Joelle Moses from BBC’s The Voice And during the party the children got to pet Liam and Ru – two of the zoo’s Meerkats – as well as Honey the Kinkajou, to help make it a truly memorable day.
