The ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’ Dragon Boat Challenge took place at Salford Quays. The 24 teams helped raise £20,000 to date for the charity which grants wishes of children with life threatening illnesses.
Pips costume was provided by Tony Barrie Management (TBM), the entertainment division of PJSL Ltd, which recently secured the rights to the Pip character costume for meet and greet appearances. Gayle Tarrant from Lisle International said: “Pip Ahoy! has generated so much excitement and interest in such a short time that it has all the makings of being one of the top Pre-school properties of today.”
Pip Ahoy! from CHF Entertainment Ltd follows the adventures of an eager happy-go-lucky young pup called Pip and his best friend Alba the kitten around the colourful and enchanting seaside resort of Salty Cove. It is currently being aired weekday mornings at 7am on Channel 5.
The series features Sir David Jason as the voice of Pip’s caring uncle, Skipper. X Factor finalist, singer and reality TV star, Stacey Solomon, has also recorded the theme song and is the voice of the pink flamingo, Fuchsia.
