JLS

JLS are relaunching their Foundation as part of a new partnership with Cancer Research UK. The pop group’s charitable venture, originally launched two years ago, will focus on raising money to fund research specifically into cancers that affect children, teenagers and young adults, with a new fundraising initiative to coincide with Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The group will encourage fans to enter a competition, at a pound a time, to win a special day for them and three friends spent with JLS, that will include lunch at Nandos no less, plus the group serenading the winner with a favourite JLS track, and then a trip to see another (unnamed) boyband’s show at The O2 Arena, including a spy on the soundcheck and the show itself in a private box with the JLS boys. This is all for charity, remember, so no sarcastic remarks thank you very much. And I think we can all agree, lunch at Nandos for a pound is a good deal.

The competition will take place via www.jlsfoundation.co.uk, with entrants encouraged to select when entering the three Facebook friends they’d take with them, who will then get an alert via the social network suggesting they enter too.
