Corrie's John Michie in East Africa appeal

John Michie, who plays Karl Munro in Coronation Street, is showing his real-life softer side – backing a charity appeal to help drought-hit kids in East Africa.

John has sponsored kids in Kenya for 25 years through children’s charity Plan UK after growing up there. Now the actor is backing a call for nearly 500 new sponsors to help children and their families prepare for future crises.

Watch John's video on the
Plan UK website here.

“Having grown up in Kenya, I feel a strong connection with the country,” says John, 54. "Sponsoring 17-year-old Mbinya through Plan helps me develop the connection and gives me more of an understanding of life for people in her community.”
Money donated to Plan through sponsorship funds projects for the benefit of entire communities, like school feeding and health clinics, rather than individual children. The charity is also working on innovative self-help groups for women farmers to grow more fruit for sale.

Me too Tvor..he seems like just a prop but he's quite a dish so maybe with him being ignored by Stella most of the time his eye might start to wander. hmmmm.
