Five News and the Charities Aid Foundation have announced “Britain’s Kindest Kids”, a competition to find the most charitable children aged 16 or under.
The competition, which will be promoted on Five News, is looking for children who have shown considerable kindness by giving up their free time, or raising money to help a charity or good cause.
Natasha Kaplinsky will present the winner with a prize of £1,000 pocket money live on Five News. They will also be given a £1,000 Charities Aid Foundation voucher to give to their favourite charities and a behind the scenes tour of Five News.
The panel of judges will include Natasha Kaplinsky, presenter of Five News, John Low CBE, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, Josie MacRae, Deputy Editor of Five News and Gill Nunn, Director of Innovation for the Charities Aid Foundation.
John Low explained CAF’s involvement: “We want to see an even stronger culture of giving in the UK and that means encouraging more young people to get involved in helping charities”, he said.
“I urge charities to nominate young people who raise money or volunteer with them. This competition will not only highlight the work of young people but also the causes they support.”
The closing date for entries is 11 July 2008.
