Laura Comfort appointed Ambassador for Sentebale
Founded by Prince Harry in memory of his mother, Sentebale aims to transform the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Lesotho. Laura travelled to Lesotho last year, visiting many of Sentebale's orphanages and schools. She witnessed first hand the stark conditions and lack of vital necessities, as well as the incredible work of Sentebale helping the lives of thousands of children.
"It is my dream to bring positive change to the lives of as many children in need as possible. I would like to see a world where all children have love and respect, are cared for and valued, so they can lead happy, productive lives."
Laura felt compelled to spread the message of hope, love and kindness by recording an album for children. She went into the studio and came out with 'Slimy Stew', a fantastic collection of fun, inspirational songs with catchy, melodic tunes that will entertain the whole family."

A Christmas single soon followed with airplay on Radio 2. 'A Better World', with its compelling sing-along melody and a positive meaningful message was being sung across the country. Laura has donated the proceeds and devoted much of her time to UK Charities such as CLIC Sargent Cancer Care for Children, The Red Cross, NSPCC and Women for Women International UK.
"I hope my songs will bring some joy into their lives and give them a brighter future."
