Eve Kerton from Clonmel is granting the wishes of children with life-threatening conditions this Christmas by taking part in a 24-hour live television broadcast this Friday, December 6.
Eve is a member of the Media Production Society in Dublin City University (DCU) and is part of a team of over 100 students who are using their camera, production and acting skills to raise vital funds for the Make A Wish Ireland Foundation. She is studying Communications in DCU.
Daughter of Susan and Paul Kerton, Eve is a judge for DCUtv X Factor. The live shows will be broadcast throughout the 24 hours with 8 finalists competing for their chance to release a single this Christmas.
“I’m really excited for this year’s broadcast and to find the next best thing from DCU”, she says.
“There’s so much talent I could hardly bring myself to say no to some of them during auditions. And it’s all for a great cause, which is fantastic. We’re hoping to raise €4,000, which is a big challenge, but with some support from home I think we can manage it.”
The Media Production Society (MPS), in association with Bank Of Ireland, have recruited over 100 volunteers to create 24 hours of original shows - 53 programmes in total. The schedule is packed with cooking shows, game shows, quiz shows, dating shows, comedy, puppetry, nonsensical investigations into cheesecake and even a toy show.
The TV marathon kicks off at 10pm on Friday December 6 and finishes at 10pm on December 7. You can watch live and donate online at www.dcumps.com and help make a child’s wish come true this Christmas.
