This Christmas starts with the TV institution NOEL’S CHRISTMAS PRESENTS on Sky 1 HD and Twofour Productions are looking for people who truly deserve the Christmas present of a lifetime. . Maybe it’s someone who has given their life to help a charity, an individual or an underprivileged group. Do you know someone who has faced adversity, through personal circumstances, illness or loss and has been a selfless and inspiring example to others? Is there someone in your life who dreams of spending Christmas with a lost love or family member they haven’t seen for a long time but their current circumstances prevent them from doing so? How would you reward them to make this Christmas extra special?
Noel Edmonds travels the length and breadth of the country to surprise some of the nation’s most deserving, hard-working and selfless people with a Christmas Present they will never forget. Filming starts very soon, so please get your suggestions in now for those people who go further than anyone else to make a positive difference to their individual communities and the people living within them. Noel will give each person selected a once in a lifetime present or trip which they may have dreamed of, but have never been able to achieve. Last year there was an extra special for Paul, Ben and Jamie Hazelby: this inspirational family deserved a special Christmas present after losing their mum, Gill, to cancer in January 2009 and raising huge sums for the hospice where she spent her final days. Noel surprised them by suddenly appearing out of a magician’s cabinet in the middle of a shopping ce! ntre. Both boys are keen musicians and after Noel presented Ben with a keyboard and Jamie with a guitar, they were off to London’s RAK studios to record Chris de Burgh’s ‘Lonely Sky’, which had been their mum’s favourite song, with top producer Stuart Epps. En route they had a surprise masterclass from McFly and were then astonished to find themselves duetting with Chris de Burgh himself. Tell us what that present could be. It might be small or large, serious or daft: we just want to know who, what and why.
Noel Edmonds said:
“Christmas comes early for me every year as I get the huge treat to give some magical presents to some truly inspiring people.”
