Cat Deeley supports M&S Hangers Appeal to aid Unicef project

So You Think You Can Dance’s Cat Deeley is lending her support to Marks & Spencer’s Hangers Appeal.

Deely & M&S are encouraging customers to leave the clothes hanger behind when purchasing clothing from the store. M&S will donate 50p, for every £1 saved from recycling, to Unicef’s new project for children in Bangledesh. “The project is being carried out in two locations, in the Mymensingh and Dhaka regions, providing clean water, education and healthcare for children, and aims to aid more than 50,000 people”. (

It is estimated that up to 150 million unwanted hangers each year could be recycled under this scheme. M&S hope to raise £1.9million over 3 years.

Deeley said: “There are countries where children live in fear and without access to things like running water, education or healthcare. We need to help these children.

“By turning recycled hangers into money for charity, it means M&S staff and customers are doing a great thing every time they drop a hanger into the box.”

So please do your bit by saying no to a hanger when shopping at M&S.

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
