Brighton-based charity looks for lookalikes

Posted On 07 Aug 2011 at 11:00 pm

A popular Brighton children’s charity is on the lookout for iconic lookalikes.

Rockinghorse, the sick children’s charity, wants to find famous doubles to promote its annual fundraising ball.

Those chosen will feature in publicity and promotional material for the ball.

The charity has chosen a “Cool Britannia” theme for its ball which will be held at the Hilton Brighton Metropole on Sunday 19 November.

Allie Pollie, the event organiser from Rockinghorse, said: “It will feature all that is great about Britain, including iconic music, British food and the charity’s infamous dodgems.

But, she said: “We need the people of Brighton and Hove’s help.

“Hiring lookalikes can be really costly so this competition will not only save the charity money but may also help budding lookalikes get some great publicity while having fun.

Free ticket

“The winners will feature in our press launch in September and will receive a free ticket to the ball.

“So if you’re the spitting image of Kate or Wills, the Queen, Paul McCartney, Posh, Becks or even Harry Potter, get in touch!”

To enter, send in a photo with your name and the name of your celebrity double. Include your contact details too.

Email entries to or send them by post to Allie Polhill, Rockinghorse, Unison House, 179 Preston Road, Brighton BN1 6AG.

The closing date is Friday 26 August.

Tickets for the ball – one of the highlights of the social calendar in Brighton and Hove – will be on sale soon.
