Mitch Winehouse - Mitch Winehouse Wants Sarah Harding To Front Amy Charity

Mitch Winehouse wants Sarah Harding to be an ambassador for The Amy Winehouse Foundation.

The father of the late 'Back to Black' hitmaker thinks the Girls Aloud singer - who checked into a rehab clinic in the US earlier this month with "alcohol and depression" problems - will be an "ideal" person to speak to youngsters about the dangers of alcoholism and drug addiction.

Mitch - who set up the charity in memory of his daughter, who was found dead at her London home in July - told The Sun newspaper: "If we could pick Sarah up when she recovers and put her in front of a school assembly to tell those kids the reality of drinking and alcoholism, it would be making a big start.

"Sarah will be ideal, but all in good time when she has faced her own problems.

"There might be some kids who actually take notice of what she has to say.

"We have been working with a group called Concordiat and we are going to take people in recovery into schools to speak about alcohol and drug issues. Who better to talk to kids than the people who have been there and done it?"

The foundation - which launched on September 14, which would have been Amy's 28th birthday - has already made three £10,000 donations to charities close to the late singer - children's hospices Littlehaven's and Chestnut Tree House, as well as Hopes And Dreams, which gives holidays to ill kids.

Another major donation from the charity is set to come from the sales of 'Body & Soul', the song Amy recorded with Tony Bennett at Abbey Road Studios in London in March.
