Who's in our musical super group?

Robert Plant

The legendary lead singer of Led Zeppelin has played Glastonbury countless times, but he's also played at one of our gigs! Robert formed his own super group with fellow rock legend Steve Winwood to play a charity gig in Glouchestershire earlier this year. The gig raised over £5000 - we think Robert rocks. 

Damon Albarn

Damon is best known for founding the virtual band Gorillaz as well as being frontman of Britpop stars Blur. Back in 2009 Damon recorded a beautiful reading of Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox for our Fantastic Fathers competition. 



Dame Shirley Bassey

One the greatest British vocalists of all time, Dame Shirley supported our Attic Amnesty eBay auction back in 2009. Here she is belting out the James Bond classic Goldfinger, live at the Royal Albert Hall. 

Kym Marsh

Kym conquered the charts with Hear'Say in the early 2000s. She has since released a solo album and joined the cast of Coronation Street. Kym supported our Fair and Square campaign to give every child in poverty a free school meal.

Melanie C

Melanie C is also known as Sporty Spice, one of five members of the Spice Girls. She has sold over 100 million records in the band and more than 12 million as a solo artist.

Mel supported our Fair and Square campaign and wants 'a decent education and a decent future' for all children.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor

A singer-songwriter and model, Sophie's newest album, Make a Scene, reached number four on the UK charts. Sophie supported The Children's Society Garden and also our Attic Amnesty auction.

Misha B

Misha B is a rapper and singer, and was a semi-finalist on The X Factor in 2011. She recently opened for Nicki Minaj during the UK leg of her world tour. Misha supports The Children's Society in Manchester, her hometown.
