For the next two months (and counting!), six amazing celebrities are competing to recruit as many volunteers as they can. Each has selected an organisation they want to champion and will be encouraging people to sign up for volunteering opportunities by their organisation. We’ve put up a live leader board of which celebrity is edging out which in real time at the leaderboard.
So who are these great personalities with a heart? Let’s take a look!
