Mum-of-four Victoria said she was delighted to support the charity's "wonderful" work.

"As a mother, I passionately believe that all children, wherever they live, have the right to a happy, healthy life. Everyone out there can do their part by purchasing or donating, ensuring children all around the world have the opportunity of a brighter future," she said.
