Doncaster Rovers have collaborated with beauty expert Blondie in a unique fundraising challenge in an effort for raise £4000 to help transform lives in the UK and Africa.
The challenge, in aid of Red Nose Day, which took place on Thursday 28th February, involved the entire Doncaster Rovers first team squad being made over with red lipstick in a unique challenge with Beauty by Blondie.
Doncaster Rovers Captain Rob Jones said “We always love to support this charity and the players really enjoyed it“
Blondie, who is fast becoming known as the brand new Beauty Expert on the scene said: “One in ten men in the UK wear makeup, and I can’t think of a funnier way to raise money than seeing the Doncaster Rovers wearing their team colour on their lips”.
The challenge was captured by Doncaster Rovers Media and in conjunction with Beauty by Blondie Media an official #redlipstick4RND video has been produced.
Doncaster Rovers Chief Executive said on the fundraising: “We are delighted to be working with Blondie in this unique fundraising challenge. The lads are being great sports and I hope that everyone will support them by wearing red noses and red lipstick at our Red Nose Day honorary match”
Rovers are no strangers to raising money for charity and last year fans helped to raise an enormous amount for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospital when Louis Tomlinson fetched his Three Horseshoes team to the stadium.
One Direction’s charity single for Red Nose Day “Teenage Kicks” has soared to number 1 in 63 countries. Louis is supporting Doncaster Rovers makeover challenge saying “I can’t wait to see Blondie makeover the team and I hope that everyone in Doncaster and the rest of the world can help to raise lots of money for Red Nose Day”
Schools across the UK are being encouraged to raise money for Comic Relief and they can host their own red lipstick fun by signing up to be part of Blondie’s fundraising team.
