This week supermodels Laura Bailey and Jemma Kidd are helping Action on Addiction launch its "Angels Against Addiction
fundraising and awareness campaign. The initiative aims to draw attention to the scale of addiction, which kills more than 150,000 people a year in the UK, and the need for more research to help prevent and treat addiction to smoking, drinking and drug use. Angels Against Addiction wants the public to become more aware of the condition and become a guardian angel to friends or family members who may suffer from such a problem. The charity is selling customised T-shirts and key rings to raise funds for the campaign, and has secured the support of other celebrities including Joan Collins and Tania Bryer.
