International TV Presenter Cat Deeley has supported Unicef UK since 2008 and was appointed an Ambassador in 2010.
Cat’s first visit with Unicef was to the Philippines in 2008 to see our projects with street children for Soccer Aid.
She has continued to support Soccer Aid, travelling to Madagascar to see Unicef’s immunisation work and Serbia when she visited an institution for abandoned children.
I ask her what future she wants for her daughter:
"I want her to be a doctor; first career, then marriage. I did not get this opportunity but I want to give it to my daughter."
Cat Deeley, Unicef UK Ambassador
Cat has also supported Unicef’s corporate partnerships including Barclays, M&S and British Airways. In 2013 she travelled to India to visit young women in the urban slums of Mumbai and rural villages of Chandrapur, who were being empowered with financial and business skills through the Unicef and Barclays Building Young Futures programme.
Cat, along with a number of well-known faces, supported our New Year’s Eve campaign encouraging people to make a resolution they can keep and help children affected by the conflict in Syria.
