Friday 5th Aug: Gemma Cairney for Trekstock
From one interview to another - the Radio 1XTRA Dj Gemma Cairney who invited me in for a little feature in January to discuss whats hot and whats not......... on a day that she was celebrating summer in the middle of winter (hence the sunglasses!). What a shame we didn't realise that the actual summer to come would be just as much a figment of our imagination!!! I suspect that Gemma probably had no idea that she would also be climbing Mount Kenya come September! The trip to scale up the second highest mountain in Africa has been organised to raise money for the charity Trekstock who support young people with cancer by raising funds & awareness through combining music, fashion & treks. Gemma is currently on the search for sponsorship so to check out more details of how to donate or get involved, visit justgiving.com/Gemma-Cairney or text GEMC85 to 70070 £2/£5/£10. Also tune in to her 1XTRA show today to hear CK model Aaron Frew take position in the hot seat for the Friday fashion feature......
