Keelman’s Way School visit

Dave Benson Phillips dropped in to entertain young people at Keelman’s Way school in Hebburn, on Friday 7 June.

Dave spent the day delivering Makaton signing and singing workshops to pupils aged between 2-19 years old. He kept pupils at Keelman’s Way, in Hebburn, entertained with nursery rhymes, and sing-a-longs with his guitar, taking requests for everything from George Ezra’s Shotgun, to Mama-Mia!
“He’s just got so much energy, he’s not stopped all day,” said Assistant Head Teacher, at Keelman’s Way, Laura McGregor. “He’s a fantastic role model for our children, they are absolutely hooked – and even a few of the older staff who remember him from Playbus.”
She continued: “We’ve got children who really struggle with their communication, with their emotions and in terms of how he’s engaged them he’s just been wonderful.”

There are more lovely quotes in the Shields Gazette article.

Stand Up for Cancer Single

Dave Benson Phillips Stand Up For Cancer

Dave ‘features’ in this charity single/video for Channel 4’s 2018 Stand Up For Cancer. You can find out more from The Metro. Davina McCall was hoping to record the biggest charity single ever. In a bid to try and beat Band-Aid, Comic Relief and Children in Need combined, Davina McCall enlisted the help of Jamie Laing and Spencer Matthews. She gave them the task of recording a charity single, and they had to rope in some of their biggest showbiz pals. And even though Spencer’s brother is married to Pippa Middleton, the best he could conjure up were the likes of Honey G, Nikki Grahame and The Krankies. But Davina wasn’t worried, praising the boys for their efforts.

She told Jamie and Spencer: “You promised me royalty, and you have delivered! Gold! I love it!”
