A host of stars from the pop world got together for a charity watersports bash in Ashford on Sunday. The SEGA Splash for Starlight, in aid of the Starlight Foundation which turns the dreams of seriously ill children into reality, was held at the Princes Waterski Club in Clockhouse Lane, Ashford. It was organised by Radio One DJ Gary Davies and featured chart-toping pop stars competing in five exciting water games. Among the famous facts were Betty Boo, Sinitta, Aswad, Kim Wilde and members of Beats International, Big Fun and Big Country.

The popular children's television programme 8.13 from Manchester filmed the proceedings and Philip Schofield's Sunday afternoon Radio One show was broadcast live from the event. The Starlight Foundation is supported by music, film and television celebrities throughout the world. Gary Davies said: "I am delighted that SEGA has agreed to sponsor this worthwhile event and help raise much needed money for the Starlight Foundation."
