Elizabeth Hurley has become the new Ambassador for a British charity that focuses on donations to special children for medical treatment, therapy, specialized equipment, and dying wish holidays.
Established in 2000, Caudwell Children has made over 2,000 donations to families with disabled children. And now they will benefit from the efforts of Hurley, who will raise awareness of the charity and also help fundraise throughout the next year.
“There are sick and disabled children living in the UK who may not be receiving the support they need,” said the model and actress. “Caudwell Children is trying to make a difference and I’m happy to help.”
The charity is extremely thrilled with the appointment, and is hoping for big things to come from the partnership.
“She is a global film and fashion icon as well as being respected as a loving mother,” said Trudi Beswick, chief executive officer of Caudwell Children. “It is a great start to 2009 to be able to announce Elizabeth’s involvement and I’m confident that she will be influential in the continued growth of the charity.”
