Our celebrity ambassadors
Kylie Minogue OBE
Kylie Minogue, the iconic pop star, was appointed the first ever ambassador for the NSPCC in August 2003. In her role as an ambassador Kylie lends her support to NSPCC campaigns with special reference to the NSPCC Helpline and acts as an advocate for young people.
During most of 2005 and part of 2006 Kylie took time out of the public eye due to illness but has now re-entered professional life and reaffirmed her commitment to the NSPCC, pledging her full support.
Prior to her illness Kylie was active on a number of fronts. In November 2003 she donated a large number of tickets for her private show, the ‘Money Can’t Buy’ concert. She followed this up in 2004 by donating tickets to her ‘Kylie - Show Girl’ tour which were auctioned at NSPCC events and raised over £10,000.
In September 2004 in her role as NSPCC ambassador she attended the Matalan Ball and spoke engagingly and passionately about her support of Matalan’s Safe Place Appeal helping to push fundraising to almost £1 million. She was the celebrity face of the NSPCC’s showpiece schools’ fundraiser, Number Day. In addition she has supported a number of corporate and donor relationships as well as giving us rare memorabilia to auction.
Kylie Minogue said:
"All children should have the right to grow up loved, safe and happy. The NSPCC firmly believes this which is why I chose to be an NSPCC Ambassador. Children are so precious, we need to do all we can to look after them."
