Fundraising: Celebrity watch - Jamelia Supports: NCH

Indira Das-Gupta

Jamelia is the face of a major new campaign for children's charity NCH. The singer features in a number of posters with different messages aimed at young people. In addition to the one pictured on bullying, the posters offer advice about using internet chat rooms and promote self-esteem.

Jamelia penned a chart hit about the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-partner, called Thank you. She now raises her three-year-old daughter Teja alone, and NCH felt that her experiences made her a powerful spokeswoman.

"Helping other people is really important," said Jamelia. "None of us succeed by ourselves, we all need help along the way. My mum gave me so much love and support that it gave me a real faith in myself, and now I'm trying to use my own experiences to inspire others."
