Denise Welsh Walks For Children

13 March 2007

Actress Denise Welch takes time out from BBC’s Waterloo Road to model the specially designed T-shirt for Footsteps for Childhood, The Children’s Society’s new national walking event sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance.

The T-shirts range in a number of styles and sizes. Modelling the ladies fashion T-shirt Denise said, “The T-shirts are very cool! They are really funky. I love wearing purple eye shadow, so the colour scheme is great for me! The whole campaign is a great idea”.

Denise was pleased to be supporting The Children’s Society, which campaign for young runaway children. An issue Denise is familiar with, as her character Steph Haydock on Waterloo Road recently took a young runaway into her home.

Despite a busy schedule, Denise aims to take time part in one of the Footsteps for Childhood sponsored walks taking place in six venues across the country this summer. All money raised through the event will directly help in supporting thousands of children who have been deprived of a good childhood.

The Footsteps events are being sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance. Ecclesiastical is a leading insurer of schools, charities, care homes and churches. It also insures heritage properties, a number of which are featured on the walks.
