Coronation Street supporting four charities

Coronation Street as a whole will officially be supporting four charities this year in honour of the 50th anniversary. They polled the actors with a ballot and the results have been announced by ITV today. The charities are: NSPCC which is invoved with child help lines and child abuse, Cancer Research UK which is self explanatory, Moodswings, a mental health charity that Jennie McAlpine is involved with in conunction with her dad, and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust which is also a cancer centre. You will remember the silver "flying ducks" brooch that the Duchess of Cornwall wore on her visit to the set. The auction for this will be one of the first events that will benefit these charities. It's always nice to see good charities benefit from lots of publicity like this!
