I was also present at the concert in Llandudno on 24th September and don't recall any mention of Hayley's own charity. I have always supported those area where Hayley has a charitable interest so think I would have noticed such a reference.
There are perhaps new charity projects that Hayley is getting involved in, perhaps with UNICEF, since her existing ones have achieved thier purpose. And there is also the Classic FM one. Starting a new charity I don't believe, that is a lot of work and I'm sure that there is no way Hayley could ever find the time.
They might have meant she has a new charity she's working on, which might be that East Africa one. But that wouldn't be her very own charity, it would be UNICEF, I'm pretty sure.
Yes, a new project within her UNICEF remit is possibly what was referred to. We know there are things in the pipeline that Hayley has intimated an interest in. Already being aware of such intention, I probably would not have picked up on it.
I agree with you Martin - Setting up a 'new' charity would require time and effort that Hayley would find time to include in her already heavy schedule.
We think there was a misunderstanding in Llandudno. As far as we know, Hayley hasn't started a charity of her own, but she's a good supporter of several major charities which you can read about on the sub-boards.
