The View make their mark

Glastonbury celebrities make their mark for Save the Children

A host of celebrities and musicians at Glastonbury Festival have shown their support for a children's charity.

Tinchy Stryder, The View, Graham Coxon of Blur, Keith Allen, Pixie Geldof and K T Tunstall were some of many who gave their fingerprints to Save the Children as part of its Make Your Mark campaign.

According to the charity, some ten million children throughout the world die annually before their fifth birthday, many from preventable or treatable causes.

K T Tunstall told the charity: "I chose to make my mark for clean water. Every child should have access to clean water; it's a basic human right."

Save the Children will operate similar awareness campaigns at other festivals this summer, including Bestival, V Festival and the Bristol Balloon Festival.

According to statistics from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the world total of internally displaced people reached 26 million at the end of 2008, an historic high.
