Cancer Research Race for Life

Halla is proudly supporting Cancer Research UK's Race for Life. One in two people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and affects so many families including Halla's own. It's a disease which has taken her father, grandfather and close friends, so she is keen to support all efforts to research better treatment and a cure.

Charity Shop Couture

Halla works in partnership with Shelter Scotland, Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland and Oxfam Scotland to promote their network of charity shops. Using the hashtag #charityshopcouture, Halla has been wearing a selection of outfits from the charity's network of shops on air, to demonstrate the quality of goods available, and to encourage more people to donate to and buy from charity shops. She is also keen to stress the positive environmental impact this has.
