If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to step into a boxing ring then you’re in luck because Barnardo’s is making dreams come true.
The leading children’s charity has teamed up with some of the UK’s most loved stars to help banish the lockdown blues with its Fifteen Minutes with Fame prize draw.
Winners really can discuss how to pull punches with world-champion boxer Amir Khan on an exclusive video call.
They can also have some banter with comedian John Bishop, while Harry Potter fans can test their wizarding knowledge with a quiz from Lucuis Malfoy himself, BAFTA-nominee Jason Isaacs.
These celebrities are the latest Barnardo’s ambassadors and supporters who are offering members of the public the chance to win a 15 minute video call with them in order to raise money for Barnardo’s Covid 19 appeal. More big names will follow in the coming weeks.
Each entry costs £5 and proceeds go to the Barnardo’s emergency appeal, to help the charity continue its vital work supporting vulnerable families across the UK during these very challenging times.
Amir Khan said: “As a long-time Barnardo’s ambassador, I want to do anything I can to make sure that this incredible charity can continue to support vulnerable children all over the UK.
“Chuck in a fiver and we can have a chat about the world of boxing or anything else you like!”
Jason Isaacs said: “The work that Barnardo’s does with vulnerable children is vital at this time of crisis. That’s why I’m so pleased to offer a video call with me, in which I will host a Harry Potter quiz for the winner and their friends to put their knowledge to the test, ultimately proving unequivocally who the biggest fan is!”
John Bishop said: “Barnardo’s does incredible work with vulnerable children all across the UK, so I’m pleased to be able to offer a one on one video chat to raise money for their coronavirus appeal.
“The money raised will go towards Barnardo’s vital work – plus you’ll get the chance to have a chat with me! So go on, enter the draw today.”

Barnardo’s Chief Executive Javed Khan said: “The vulnerable children Barnardo’s supports need us now more than ever. We’re working round the clock to adapt our vital services, so we can continue to help children and families – whether face to face, on the phone or through an App.
“But we cannot do this alone, and with our shops closed and major events cancelled, we’re more reliant than ever on the generosity of our friends and supporters, as well as the British public. This is why I’m so grateful to our fantastic ambassadors and supporters, and to everyone bidding for 15 Minutes with Fame. The funds raised will help make sure we can support vulnerable children through this crisis.”
