Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As many of you will know, I'm much more used to putting my physical energies into my work on stage, however, as part of my commitment to The Hunger Project UK, on September 29, 2012,  I will be taking rather more than a stroll along 50K of The Thames Path to raise further awareness and funds for their important work. Please support me by making a donation, take the challenge with me if you like, that would be BRILLIANT! but what ever happens..I'm already walking it with my lovely chum Jane Haworth from English National Ballet and I need to finish before her (even if it's only by a nose)  and raise more money! This in not a competition...this is WAR!......find out more at:

I have been a Patron of The Hunger Project UK for the past couple of years and have played my part to support them in creating the annual World Hunger Day campaign.

 We just celebrated its second year at The Royal Albert Hall with a fundraiser starring Dionne Warwick & Friends, amazing night! Also, last year I created my own fundraiser in support of this entitled The Royal Ballet's Gary Avis & Friends which raised £50,000 to further their work. I'm hoping to do this again in 2013, but in the meantime, this year I thought I'd take on The Thames Path Challenge to raise some more funds.

Why support The Hunger Project?

They are a very special Global Charity who's single aim is to end hunger and poverty. Take a look at the video link

 to find out why their work is so unique, practical, inspiring, cost effective, sustainable and WORTH SUPPORTING! They currently have 300 Staff leading an incredible 375,000 Volunteer Leaders. In partnership with those suffering from extreme hunger and poverty, this amazing onganisation is already ending hunger in isolated rural communities in Africa, South Asia and Latin America. Support me to support them to do more! 25,000 people die each and every day as a result of hunger and poverty, let's do something about it! Thank you.
