Most people have had cancer touch their lives in
some way – either themselves, a relative, a friend. I am happy to be helping
Cancer Research UK find people for their Shine walk advert. The Shine walk
is a night time walk through London and I am looking for some people who
fulfill the brief below. There will be a lot more people on the walk in this
spot than those mentioned below however the director is trying to put across
certain ideas hence we are being quite specific re the people we are looking
for. The walk is to be filmed for a spot for Shine Walk and will be shown
online to promote the walk itself.
No one person is featured – camera may linger on
each of our characters below but it’s more enhanced walk on – not featured.
Hopefully many people will want to be involved in this good cause

JANE & SARAH: real Sisters (18 – 42). We dont want to be too age specific: women who look
as though they are teens/young adults to people in their 30’s & 40’s.
We are looking for a pair of siblings who have lost
a parent. When they are on the walk they would have a Shine vest which says
‘Shining for Mum’ or ‘ Shining for Dad’.
It would be very helpful if the 2 sisters look
similar so we know immediately they are related – twins would be good too!

ANNIE: Her child has survived cancer. They have battled
cancer together! Preferably she looks between 20-35yrs old
