In memory of radio presenter Stephen Clements’ birthday, the Foundation set up in his name, is launching Stephen Clements Day on December 17 – a day dedicated to random acts of kindness throughout Northern Ireland.

With a mission to keep the much-loved broadcaster’s memory alive, The Stephen Clements Foundation was set up as way of continuing to fundraise for the charities that Stephen supported in his lifetime, with 100% of all donations raised being distributed among local charities.

To mark the day, on December 17, people are being asked to make a difference to someone’s day by carrying out a random act of kindness.  The Foundation will also be celebrating with a number of virtual events including a quiz, competitions, prizes, video memories and much more. 

The Foundation is putting a call out to businesses to Northern Ireland to get involved in the day in their own way.  This can be anything from giving your customers a discount code to free coffee or tickets.

People can then take a picture of their random act of kindness and upload it onto social media using the hashtag #stephenclementsday

Stephen’s long-term on-air partner Cate Conway said;

“Stephen was a very kind-hearted, generous and caring person and we wanted to celebrate his birthday this year by spreading some joy and kindness throughout our community.

“2020 has been a tough year for so many people and so in Stephen’s memory we are encouraging everyone to complete a random act of kindness and, if they can, donate to the Foundation,” she added.

Gareth Murphy, owner of We Are Vertigo and one of the trustees of the Stephen Clements Foundation added;

“Stephen supported so many people, businesses and charities throughout his life and we’ve launched Stephen Clements Day to keep that generosity going.  We are asking everyone to get involved and to spread some joy this festive season.  Keep an eye on the Stephen Clements Foundation’s social media channels to see what fun acts of kindness we have planned and find out how you can participate too.”

To get involved, simply carry out a random act of kindness, upload a photo onto social media and use the hashtag #stephenclementsday

Businesses that want to get involved can email info@stephenclementsfoundation.com for more information. 

Stephen’s brother Gavin Clements and his friends, Gareth Murphy, owner of the leisure business We Are Vertigo and his former radio co-host Cate Conway are the three trustees behind the Stephen Clements Foundation.
