Thanks for the great photos. Denise and her mother have had a day in London today. It was arranged long ago as a shopping expedition. I mentioned this event was taking place and where it would be held but I am afraid to say that the shopping was more attractive to them. I don't understand it!
Hayley always looks great in any situation, and she was clearly enjoying herself there. She is not only a great ambassador for New Zealand, but for the UK and London too! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
I think it's a folding bicycle that Hayley is riding, so she can take it on the Tube!
Hello all, "Third sector", a UK weekly magazine, published an article about Hayley joining WEN in their latest issue. Here it is :
At Work: Fundraising - Our famous names 11 April 2007 (c) Third Sector, a Haymarket publication
Soprano Hayley Westenra is a patron of the Women's Environmental Network.
Classical music singer Westenra, who sells millions of albums worldwide, stumbled across the Women's Environmental Network by chance when she was surfing the internet. She offered to use her public profile to raise awareness of the charity.
In an interview the New Zealander gave to WENnews, the charity's newsletter for members, she said: 'I'm not always that perfect in what I do, but I think it's a matter of doing whatever you can as an individual, as well as knowing and living by the principle that every bit helps.'
Westenra is the charity's first celebrity supporter. 'We hadn't sought out celebrity support, partly because we're not that keen on the cult of celebrity and partly because we weren't sure we had the capacity to provide the level of support that some celebrities need,' says a spokeswoman. 'But Hayley seems to be the genuine article - very natural, passionate about the issues and committed to helping the charity attract new members and donations.'
The last paragraph says a lot about the differences between Hayley and other celebrities, and I couldn't put it any better myself. I felt it was worth highlighting in your post. i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
