Joel Dommett, comedian and star presenter of TV hit The Masked Singer, along with his wife, model Hannah Cooper, are throwing their support behind charity Brain Tumour Support following their own family experience of the impact of a brain tumour diagnosis.
Joel has donated two of his trademark eye-catching suits from TV show The Masked Singer, and the couple are aiming to raise as much money as possible through an online raffle, as well as awareness for the work of the charity.
Joel’s Masked Singer Suit Raffle means that for just £5 per ticket, anyone can have the chance to win one of the high class bespoke suits worn by Joel on the show. On offer are two of his favourites, both tailored by top designer Joshua Kane. The ‘Golden 3-tailors’ suit is 60% silk/40% wool and the ‘Pink falling blossom’ suit is 100% silk. Joel and Hannah launched the online raffle on Saturday 6th February and tickets can be bought up until midnight on Sunday 14th February, with the lucky winners being announced on Monday 15th.
Joel explained “We’d love to sell 1,000 tickets, but of course we just want to raise as much money as possible so the sky’s the limit. We know first-hand how much good every single pound raised will do in supporting individuals and families facing the shocking news of a brain tumour diagnosis.”

Joel previously championed Brain Tumour Support in December 2019 through his appearance in a celebrity edition of the STV show Catchphrase. Sadly, he and his wife Hannah have since had direct experience of the support that the charity provides, with Hannah’s mother being diagnosed with a brain tumour just before Christmas 2020. The news came as a complete shock to the whole family as Hannah recalls “You will never forget the exact time and place you were when you heard those dreaded words regarding a loved one’s diagnosis, but the strength and support at any hour of the day that the charity has given both myself and my family is something we will be forever grateful for.”
Hannah’s mum is currently awaiting surgery and Hannah has said how the support that they have received already has helped them cope individually and as a family. “Brain Tumour Support has been a huge part of our journey as a family and the positive and emotional support we didn’t even realise we needed.”
Understanding first-hand how devastating the news of any brain tumour diagnosis is, and how important it is to have access to the right help, Joel and Hannah are even more passionate about supporting the charity.
Tina Mitchell Skinner, CEO and Founder of Brain Tumour Support, said “Receiving a brain tumour diagnosis is shocking news and difficult for any family to cope with. When someone close to you is affected it brings home the stark reality that brain tumours can affect anyone at any time, they don’t discriminate, there is no known cause and sadly so many patients and families cannot wait for the benefits of research, they need support and practical help today. We are so grateful to Joel and Hannah for everything that they are doing in raising both funds and awareness for our work. This comes at a crucial time when we face a growing demand for support across the country due to the added pressures and anxiety that the coronavirus pandemic has caused.”
