It’s that time of the week when we highlight the very best celebrity charity partnerships in our Celebrity Charity of the Week award. Vote for your favourite, and we’ll announce the winner on Friday.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Rainbow Place Children’s Hospice

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s tour of New Zealand has created a deluge of international press, but it was The Duchess’s visit to the Rainbow Place Children’s Hospice that generated the most goodwill.

The Duchess met a six year old patient for afternoon tea, before touring the building, and meeting key people.

The visit seeded better than most of the ceremonial aspects of the Royals’ tour, as it was rooted in a more humanistic sentiment, with The Duchess’s famous engagement skills used to great PR effect.

Malala, Orlando Bloom, Seth Rogen, Selena Gomez et al. and the Malala Fund

The inspirational Malala has joined forces with a host of famous faces, including Orlando Bloom, Seth Rogen, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Hudson, Clive Owen, and Edward Norton, amongst many others.

The young Afghan peace campaigner is working with the celebrity supporters to raise awareness of the Malala Fund’s #WeAreSilent campaign, asking individuals to ‘share the shhh’, and be silent on 17th April.

To support the campaign the celebrities have recorded a powerful video, reading Malala’s own words, which has generated over 60,000 views in just four days.

Sean Bean, David Cameron, Sarah Millican, Stephen Fry et al. and The Royal British Legion and The Victoria Cross Trust

A host of famous British faces have joined forces to lend their vocal talents to a new album of spoken word and music, remembering the horrors of World War 1.

Led by British Prime Minister David Cameron, the cast also includes actors Sean Bean and Danny Dyer, alongside comedy names, including Stephen Fry and Sarah Millican.

The stars are reading aloud iconic poems from the time, set to the music of the age. Royal British Legion Director of Fundraising called the album a “truly unique and painstaking collaboration”, and funds raised by the campaign will go to the charity’s work with serving and ex military families.

Beyonce and The Prince’s Trust

Global superstar Beyonce has raised £85,000 for The Prince’s Trust, after the UK leg of her Mrs Carter Show World Tour 2014.

The ex-Destiny’s Child front-woman raised the funds from her groundbreaking #BeyGOOD campaign, which asks her fans to be kind and charitable, and raises funds across the world.

The singer used technology to generate the income, asking fans to text BEYGOOD to give £3, with all entries entering a draw to win upgraded tickets.
