Today, September 3rd, is the first Freddie for a Day. The hair brained scheme dreamed up by MPT.com editor, Liz Swanton, has turned into a full blown fundraising initiative and we are thrilled by the way it has been received by fans, supporters and the press. This is an exciting moment for the Mercury Phoenix Trust and we are looking forward to what today holds. All sorts of people will be dressing as Freddie, from Queen manager Jim Beach at the opening night of We Will Rock You in Utrecht to presenter Matthew Wright on the Channel Five show, The Wright Stuff.
Donâ€™t forget to send us photos of you and your mates in your Freddie costumes. Email a maximum of three photos to firstname.lastname@example.org to participate in the Freddie for a Day competition. There are two exclusive prizes to be won: The â€˜Diana Moseley Prize for Best Costumeâ€™ and the â€˜Freddie in Most Original Location Prizeâ€™. The two winners will each receive an exclusive dated and personalised Freddie for a Day golden CD of Freddieâ€™s Greatest Hits. A selection of the best photos will be put up on www.freddieforaday.com
. The deadline for entering the competition is Friday 10th September.
