Radio presenter to dress up as a princess

A local radio presenter in Romford has pledged to transform himself into a princess as part of a fundraising challenge for a local Children’s Hospice.

Time 107.5 daytime presenter Mark Dover came up with the idea after talking on-air about how Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones recently admitted in a newspaper interview that he wears women’s clothes.

Speaking on-air Mark mentioned that other rockers such as Rod Stewart, David Bowie and Marc Bolan have also worn ladies wear. Mark said: “It was then suggested by a few listeners that I should give it a go for charity. Within 30 minutes £750 had been pledged.

“For some reason I agreed but only if I could raise a minimum of £2,000.

“I then discovered that on June 11 there is an attempt to have the most people (men and women) dressed as princesses outside Romford Shopping Hall.

“As I’m going to dress as a princess, I felt that the best charity to give to was Haven House Children’s Hospice. The charity provides amazing care and support to life-limited children and their families in our local area.”

If Mark is successful in reaching his fundraising target, he will unveil his new look at the Romford Street Party for the Queen’s 90th Birthday celebration on Saturday 11 June.

He’ll take part in the official Guinness World Record attempt for the largest gathering of people dressed as princesses at 1pm.
