ANSTRUTHER DJ and television presenter Edith Bowman is taking part in a campaign to raise £1 million for Great Ormond Street Hospital’s children’s charity.

Edith has joined up with the likes of Billy Connolly, Sir Michael Caine, Julie Walters CBE and Lewis Hamilton by submitting her first memory of Disney to a special Facebook page set up by the UK version of its television channel Disney Junior.

When one million memories are submitted, Disney will then donate £1 million to the charity.

Edith, who presented the BBC’s coverage of T in the Park over the summer, noted her first memory as: “I went to Disneyworld in Florida when I was six and then again when my mum was pregnant with my little brother. Since then, I’ve been to Paris and LA, so it’s been a big part of growing up, not just for me but for my little boy as well.”

Great Ormond Street Hospital treats children from all over the UK and Disney officially became a partner with the charity, in January 2008, to raise £10 million towards the hospital’s much-needed redevelopment.

The funds raised will help towards building a new medical centre at the hospital, and create an interactive play area within it.
