Nikki did a great job speaking on our behalf about our work in India, especially with vulnerable girls and their families. Having an Indian father and grandmother who was one of India’s pioneering social workers, Nikki knows only too well the issues faced by so many children in the country where she started her career before going on to become a well-known presenter of Saturday Live on Radio 4.

Nikki said: “I spent many years living in Mumbai and witnessed first hand the poverty and vulnerability facing so many children.

"It breaks my heart that the issues of child labour and early marriage are still so prevalent but seeing the work that Railway Children is doing in these fragile communities shows just what a difference can be made with the right approach. 

"It’s a great honour to present this appeal on behalf of the charity as I know that together their project teams and supporters are changing the lives of children, families and entire communities.”
