A variety of British celebrities have completed unique drawings to raise awareness of a charity committed to helping the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK break through injustice, deprivation and inequality, so they can achieve their full potential.
The Celebrity Journeys campaign asked stars to illustrate “the start and end of a personal transformation in their lives in a single, unbroken line”. The drawings are currently appearing on an online gallery for Action for Children.
Stars who have taken up the challenge include Rod Stewart, Joanna Lumley, Gemma Atkinson, Ranulph Fiennes, Jo Brand, Robbie Coltrane, Ronnie Corbett, Esther Rantzen, Alexi Sayle, Brian Blessed, Vanessa Mae, Peter Davison, Kim Wilde, Ben Elton, Amir Khan, and many more.
“[My] picture tells the story of how anybody can start from very little and with the right ingredients and determination, can rise to the top,” said celebrity chef Gary Rhodes.
Action for Children said the online gallery will highlight the support it gives to thousands of young people as they start their own personal journeys.
