Sophie Ellis-Bextor launches children’s charity campaign

Sophie Ellis-Bextor poses covered in hundreds and thousands for The Children's Society campaign

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has posed covered in nothing but hundreds and thousands to launch a new charity campaign.

The pictures of the singer were taken by top photographer Rankin to launch The Children’s Society’s biggest campaign to collect Britain’s Hundreds and Thousands of Childhood Memories.

Sophie is the face of the new campaign, intended to connect with the public and draw on their support to give children in the UK a better childhood.

The Children’s Society intends to gather special memories from the British public in order to build an image of what a good childhood should be like. The scheme will also contribute towards The Good Childhood Inquiry – Britain’s first independent inquiry into what constitutes a good childhood.

Sophie said of the new campaign: ‘As a mum, I want my children to have some fantastic memories. Being covered in Hundreds and Thousands is much more fun than I imagined but the serious message is we really need hundreds and thousands of childhood memories – please share yours.’
