Joanna Lumley, Kids for Kids Patron, to Host the BAFTAS!
We are so excited to hear that our Patron Joanna Lumley OBE will be hosting the BAFTAS this year! Joanna is an actor, author, dear friend and truly brilliant Patron of Kids for Kids – who better to host an Awards Event? Joanna was the star Celebrity at our beautiful Annual Candlelit Christmas Concert. She chooses her own Readings and last year had us first laughing, then listening breathless as she read the words of ‘It came upon the Midnight Clear’ – bringing depth of meaning to words we often sing without considering them.
Joanna is incredibly generous with her time for the many charities she supports – all are smaller, arguably less ‘fashionable’, and all show direct benefit to those less fortunate than us. It would be hard to find a supporter with a bigger heart. When Joanna heard how desperate mothers are for education for their children, she began supporting a Kindergarten in Abu Digeise Village- now called The Kids for Kids’ Joanna Kindergarten. Joanna says of our Goat Loan Project: “Goats are the miracle animals of Africa. Their milk will save a child from starvation, and this is what Kids for Kids does best! They lend goats; and save children’s lives.”
Congratulations Joanna- we can’t wait for the BAFTAS!
