Adam Lambert fans have launched a new charity campaign, Touch of Sparkle.
The Touch of Sparkle project has been created by Adam Lambert fans from the UK, and offers ‘care packages’ to patients undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer and other cancers. The project is run in aid of the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust in Cambridge, UK.
The packages include practical items (e.g. bed socks, tissues, takeaway vouchers, sweets, herbal tea for anti-sickness) as well as distractions (e.g. puzzle books, pens, earphones, playing cards) and pamper items (e.g. nail varnish, lipbalm, eyebrow powder for hair loss). There are very few care package projects for cancer patients running in the UK and this is the first of its kind at Addenbrookes.
The care packages are put together using fans’ donations from across the world, using GoFundMe and Amazon Wishlists to make everything possible, before being delivered to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
Speaking to CelebMix, Emily Willdigg, Community Fundraising Assistant at Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, said: “We are so grateful to Touch of Sparkle and all the fantastic contributors for enabling the care packs for chemotherapy patients to continue.
“We have had many positive comments about how lovely and thoughtful the packs are, and they have really made a difference to the experience of our patients. Thank you!”
