A children’s TV presenter from Sheffield is calling on people to don a bobble hat to raise money for a children’s charity.

Richard McCourt - better known as one half of Dick & Dom - is supporting the NSPCC’s first ever Bobble Hat Day, a nationwide festive fundraising event urging everyone in Sheffield and South Yorkshire to wear a bobble hat on December 10.

Dick and Dom are both asking people to donate £2 by texting BOBBLE to 70744 and posting a bobble hat photo on Twitter with the hashtag #BOBBLEHATDAY.

The pair said: “Most kids can’t wait for a fun, family Christmas full of presents and laughter but tragically, it’s not the same for all children.

“ChildLine offers help and support to thousands of children who are dreading the festive season and desperately need someone to talk to. By simply wearing a bobble hat and donating to the NSPCC, you can help ChildLine be there for more children this Christmas and all year.”
