Because former footballer Robbie Savage has joined fellow celebs Denise van Outen, Emma Wills and Fazer in teaming up with Pepsi Max and Robinsons to launch ‘Transform Your Patch’ – a campaign that aims to regenerate around 165 outdoor spaces across the UK with the support of the public.
‘Transform Your Patch’ is one of the most ambitious community-led regeneration schemes to take place in the UK and will create great outdoor spaces for people to enjoy through a series of projects.
The campaign will see the four celebrities championing different outdoor projects supported by different brands, including; 5 a side football pitches, playgrounds, picnic areas and parks, and skate parks.
Robbie has teamed up with Pepsi Max to champion five a side football pitches.
Denise will be campaigning for playgrounds supported by Robinsons and Robinsons Fruit Shoot.
Emma will be squaring up for picnic areas and parks supported by J20 and Lipton Ice Tea.
Fazer will be championing skate parks supported by Tango and Mountain Dew.
All four are competing against each other and are calling on the UK public to vote for their team online via http://www.transformyourpatch.com. Each vote made will support the celebrity’s team, helping them to potentially secure an additional £100,000 prize fund for their project area across the UK.
‘Transform Your Patch’ will run for nine months in total and people can vote for a celebrity team and a project in their region from March to September 2012. The aim of the campaign is to regenerate around 165 outdoor spaces across the UK. To contribute is simple – every single soft drink purchased of any of the participating brands represents a real 1cm² piece of land that will be transformed. It’s a simple way for people across the UK to contribute to a long-lasting legacy on their patch.
Vote for your favourite outdoor space by going to http://www.transformyourpatch.com where they can vote for 5 a side football pitches, playgrounds, picnic areas and parks or skate parks. The most voted for outdoor space will secure an additional £100,000 prize fund for their project area across the UK.
