Love146


Rachel recently tweeted that she'd done something really exciting for Love146 who are an excellent charity who not only help to stem the tide of human traffiking but to eliminate it completely.

Amanda found these excellent pictures taken by Mark Murfitt of the 'Flash Mob' which took place on Monday in Trafalgar Square.

I had no idea what a Flash Mob was but apparently it's an impromptu dance routine in a public place.


Thanks to 'Gaz' for helping me out by supplying the following information:

Rachel was joined by past and present divas of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Charlotte Riby, Portia Emare and Gemma Atkin. They were backed by dancers from an array of West End musicals including We Will Rock You, Dirty Dancing, MAMMA MIA!, Grease, Wicked, Love Never Dies, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Wizard of Oz and the English National Ballet.

The singers and dancers performed a routine to a specially arranged track by Annie Lennox to highlight the shocking fact that child trafficking is a major problem here in Britain.

The campaign is dubbed “Can You See Me” because the crisis is all too often hidden and taboo – when in fact it is going on in towns and cities throughout the country, right in front of us.


You can listen to 'Little Bird' and see more pictures of this great event by visiting Mark Murfitts blog.

We'll add the official video to the blog as soon as it's released, which should be in the next few days.


I found the following quote from Rachel on the Love146 Facebook page:

"All of us were shocked to hear the terrible fate of children even in our home towns and cities. This is our way of trying to raise awareness, and getting people behind love146's campaign to make a real difference to some of the most damaged children in the country."
