Reece 38, from Doncaster has raised over £1m for a number of charities and is also the first Ambassador of the James Bulger Trust.

A boxing night at Radio City saw him raise over £45,000 for Cash for Kids, where the money was spent on thousands of Christmas presents for under privileged children. The Francis House Children’s Hospice also benefitted after Reece sourced the entire stock of a toy shop which was closing down.

He jointly created the Rainbow Run and Midnight Walk for Nightingale House, a Wrexham-based hospice, raising over £150,000. Now in their fifth year, Reece participates in the Rainbow Run where people get covered in every conceivable colour paint for charity.

Another charity close to Reece’s heart is the NSPCC, having suffered mental and physical abuse as a child, he wanted to do all he could to help, so he took control of a Strictly Come Dancing Stage Show at the Doncaster Dome, sold 2,000 tickets, hosted the show and raised £25,000 for the children. He also, with the help of good friends, created SoapStar, SoccerStar to raise funds for Once Upon a Smile, and his Show Star Super Star initiative raised an enormous amount for charity.
