Nighy & Frost Backing Charity's $12 Million Bid

Actors BILL NIGHY and NICK FROST are supporting a British charity's $12 million (£8 million) fundraising bid after a "humbling" trip to meet disadvantaged children in Africa.
The pair spent time in Kenya to see the work of U.K. organisation Comic Relief - and they have pledged their support to the charity's new project with British Airways, Flying Start, which aims to raise cash for vulnerable youngsters around the world.
Nighy says, "Meeting some of the most impoverished and vulnerable children in the world has been a humbling experience. Yet, despite the adversity these children face, optimism and hope is strong.
"Just seeing how Comic Relief has already made a difference has been incredibly inspiring and with the support from Flying Start, we can enrich the lives of even more children."
