British presenter Emma Willis has supported Unicef UK since 2016. As a mum of three, Emma is determined to give children around the world the best possible opportunities in life.
In 2016 Emma visited St Paul’s CE Primary School in Barnet, to see Unicef’s UK programmes in action. The children took part in a pupil focus group to discuss their experience of the Rights Respecting Schools Award, and showed Emma the OutRight projects they had been working on.
Emma hugely enjoyed getting to know the students, and seeing what the school had achieved in partnership with Unicef UK’s OutRight programme. She went on to lend her voice to our UK programmes film released one year on.
Emma has since joined Unicef UK in celebrating World Children’s Day – most notably she hosted a Facebook Live Q&A with UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham, fielding questions from children on the ‘panel’ and online. We’ve also welcomed Emma as a valued guested at inaugural Unicef UK events such as the Halloween Ball and Christmas Concert, raising awareness and funds for children affected by war and disaster.
Most recently Emma filmed ‘Delivering Babies’ for UKTV, which saw her training in the maternity ward of a BFI hospital in Harlow.
