To help raise the awareness of the Southern Stars Charitable Trust’s ongoing charity work – we are pleased to introduce our celebrity ambassadors.

Leanna Cooper


Mauri Ora my name is Leanna Cooper and I am a part of the Sticky TV crew. Every day I get to work with the wonderful Walter, Jah and Teddy while making an awesome show for New Zealand youth.

I have just joined the Southern Stars team as an ambassador and I am truly excited to be a part of such a wonderful cause doing amazing things for our tamariki. It’s important and necessary for us to empower and uplift our next generation to grow up with a mind set of “I can achieve anything!”

Let’s have some fun, encourage one another and enjoy this life together one dance at a time!


Morgan Bradley

Heya, I’m Morgan Bradley, I moved to Auckland in 2010 to pursue acting and I’m most well known for the TVNZ children’s series ‘Kidzone with Morgan’.

I got involved with Southern Stars Charitable Trust and K.I.S.S in 2014. I have performed in a few of their shows playing Alice in Alice and wonderland, and Pinocchio.

I love how honest children are, they are so pure and I think what Southern Stars does is invaluable and I’m super excited to be involved.

It’s important to work with a charity you believe in, it’s so rewarding and I can’t wait to see what southern Stars does next!

Mad Mike (Mike Whiddett)

As well as a professional drifting career, Mike juggles family life and a successful signwriting business, Cre8grafx. On joining Southern Stars as an ambassador Mike says: “I’m stoked to come on board as an ambassador for Southern Stars Charitable Trust where together we are “helping kids to be kids” and working to improve the lives of children affected by illness, disability or social circumstances. Please check out Southern Stars on Facebook and stay tuned for ways in which you can help kids be kids”.
