If starting up your own campaign is not for you, you can instead join some of the nationwide fundraising events, such as Get Your Strictly On. Where people are invited to: 'Wear your Strictly best and feel fab-u-lous this Friday 19th November'.

'By dressing up in your samba-worthy sequins for the school run, ballroom bow ties for the board meeting or cha-cha sliders for the supermarket shop, you can join the rest of the nation who are getting behind us to raise some much needed funds for children right here in the UK. You can go all out in full glitter, sparkles, feathers – the works – and get sponsored, or simply pay a small donation to take part!'
