LIZ MCCLARNON LAUNCHES ‘POPCAP CELEBRITY PLAY-OFFS’ IN AID OF BBC CHILDREN IN NEED 2009

 
Singer and former Atomic Kitten turned celebrity chef Liz McClarnon was at Tower Bridge, London yesterday to cuddle up with Pudsey Bear for the launch of the PopCap Celebrity Play-offs in association with Welcome Break – a national fundraising tour in aid of BBC Children in Need 2009.

 
Liz and Pudsey climbed aboard an iconic London cab to get the UK tour on the road. The PopCap Celebrity Play-offs tour will get the nation gaming with a fun-packed party bus, which will roll into Welcome Break locations nationally. On board, Pudsey will be joined by celebrities who will challenge members of the great British public to beat their score on the latest hit game from PopCap.com, Zuma’s Revenge! – while also raising valuable funds for BBC Children in Need 2009.

Hopping aboard from Sunday 25 October to Sunday 1 November to try their luck in the PopCap Celebrity Playoffs will be TMI TV presenters Sam and Mark, Casualty star James Redmond and national TV treasures Sooty & Sweep – with lots of surprise stars along the way. The tour will stop off at Welcome Break locations in Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham, Keele, Leicester, Sheffield and Huddersfield.

 
All money raised will go towards achieving Welcome Break’s overall fundraising target for BBC Children in Need in advance of the live Appeal show which takes place on 20 November 2009. These crucial pennies raised to BBC Children in Need will improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.  Remember the games are not just for kids. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet top sporting heroes and stars of stage and screen as they play Zuma’s Revenge! – the newest game in the PopCap.com’s portfolio. In fact, the majority of people playing at PopCap.com are over 30 and female and say the games help reduce stress and help to aid mental cognition. So Mum and Gran could really give the celebrities a run for their money!

 
In Zuma’s Revenge! the player takes the role of a fearless ball-shooting frog, exploring ancient temples and ruins. By firing coloured spheres into an advancing chain of balls to make matches of three or more, the frog blasts his way through a series of arcade challenges.

 
To get practising to beat the celebrity at your local event, visit www.popcap.com where you can play a free trial of Zuma’s Revenge! and check out lots of other free games.
