London, (ANI): Cheryl Cole recently met Prince Charles at Clarence House to discuss the Cheryl Cole Foundation, set up to help disadvantaged young people. It is due to be launched in April.
Her foundation will provide funds for the work of the Prince"s Trust in the singer"s hometown of Newcastle. The 'Girls Aloud" star told the Prince that she hopes her efforts will help youngsters in the region to fulfil their potential. “Too many young people grow up thinking no one cares and don"t believe they can make anything of themselves," the Daily Express quoted her as saying after the meeting.
“They have so much potential but can go off the rails without the right care and support. I want my Foundation to help them realise their potential and get their lives on track. I have always been a great admirer of the work of the Prince"s Trust with disadvantaged young people across the UK. It"s the perfect charity for my Foundation to support."
A spokesman for Clarence House said: “They were discussing the charitable work the Prince has done with the Prince"s Trust and (he was) sharing his experiences of the Trust over the last 35 years.
“She was talking about her aspirations and how she would like to contribute to that work in the North-east," the spokesman added.
