Bethany is 18 years old and a lover of both music and fundraising. She performs at many events around the UK both Charity and Private Events. Bethany Hare’s Smile Foundation (also known as ‘Bethany’s Smile) was founded in December 2011 by Bethany Hare (then aged 12). Bethany first began fundraising in Summer 2010 when she made a short Charlie Chaplin style film to which she sang ‘Smile’. The film received global media coverage and donations poured in from around the world to support Bethany’s cause which was, at the time, Martin House Children’s Hospice in Boston Spa, Yorkshire. Following on from this Bethany has organised many events and expanded her fundraising in order to support children with life limiting/life threatening illnesses and their families both inside and outside the hospice. Through the charity Bethany also aims to inspire and empower other young people to become fundraisers too, by speaking at various events about her fundraising. Glampfest 2019 is proud to be fundraising for this amazing charity.
