Rachel has always had a great relationship with Children In Need from when she was in S Club 7, right through to last year’s show when she presented a segment for them asking for your support.
And this year’s no different! From today you can catch Rachel’s image from last year’s Barefaced campaign (seen above) on the side of buses in Central London. She will join Tess Daley, Greg James and Louis Smith, who also feature on their own buses to help kick start this year’s campaign.
If you’d like to get involved with Children In Need this year, head to bbc.co.uk/pudsey to find out how to #BeAHero and sign up to their new fundraising hub. And if you see one of Rachel’s buses on your travels, don’t forget to tweet her a picture!
I love the relationship Rachel continuously has with Children in Need, even dating back to the S Club days Rachel has always had a soft spot for this charity!!
Rachel will be collaborating with Dettol on a campaign to raise awareness of their Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser whilst also helping underprivileged children both here and abroad.
The campaign will encourage people to donate their baby blankets to Dettol, who will wash them using their product to ensure that they are hygienically clean, before distributing them to children who otherwise wouldn’t have the comfort of a blanket.
You can donate and share your favourite blanket memories and photos on Twitter @DettolBlanket using #sharethememories and for every blanket received, Dettol will also donate £1 to the charity, Sparks.
Rachel has taken part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, ALS is the American name for the condition usually referred to as motor neuron disease (MND) in the UK. Rachel has been nominated by fellow S Clubbers Tina Barrett, Jon Lee, and Bradley Mcintosh (Let the reunion rumors begin…..)
Rachel, Wateraid Ambassador, mother, and more recently FHM’s Sexiest Women In The World has joined WaterAid’s #MeAsAGirl campaign. The article comes complete with a never before seen Childhood picture of our gorgeous
A new WaterAid campaign, launching today, is asking women everywhere to post a childhood snap with the hashtag #MeAsAGirl, to raise awareness of the thousands of girls around the world who are suffering because they lack access to clean water.
The problems they endure aren’t limited to the obvious – lack of safe drinking water, personal hygiene and clean toilet facilities – but also have a direct link to education, as children spend their days trying to collect and carry clean water for their families, rather than going to school. The consequences of not having these basic services affect women and girls the most, as going to the toilet in the open leaves them vulnerable to violence and sexual assault.
“I’m supporting WaterAid’s To be a girl campaign as I believe all girls should be able to go to school and get an education,” Sarah Brown said today. “Too many girls around the world drop out of school because of the lack of somewhere private to go the toilet, or spend hours collecting water every day or have school sick days from drinking dirty water. No girl deserves to miss the chance to fulfil her potential because of lack of access to clean, safe water.”
Aiming to highlight the carefree childhoods that most people growing up in the UK have, WaterAid is aiming to also raise £1million to help bring safe, clean water and sanitation to over 130,000 girls around the world. Take a look through our gallery of celebrities above including Sarah Brown and Laura Whitmore (not to mention a few Marie Claire staffers) and start posting your own.
We will be re-tweeting everyone who shares their #MeAsAGirl pictures with us and WaterAid on Twitter and texts GIRLS to 70300 to donate £3. We will also update the gallery above with the best snaps.
