Victoria Beckham's Charitable Son

Victoria Beckham is "delighted" her son is undertaking charity work.

Brooklyn Beckham - the star's eldest child with husband David Beckham - visited poverty-stricken state Kentucky with Save The Children after learning about the state at his exclusive school in Los Angeles.

The 10-year-old youngster played soccer with children at Manchester Elementary School and presented them with shoes and backpacks, before joining in with an after-school reading group.

He and Victoria then went to read with children at nearby Big Creek Elementary school.

Victoria said: "I'm pleased Brooklyn is learning that by helping and joining other children he can play a role in making his generation the greatest yet.

"Seeing Save the Children's innovative programmes in action, I know that we can begin to reverse the childhood poverty crisis."

As one of the poorest counties in America, Clay County has high illiteracy rates and obesity in children is a massive problem.

She added: "What I saw in Clay County was the hope and promise inherent in every child.

"That's why we have to make sure every single child has a fair and equal start in life."

The former Spice Girls star was said to be "thrilled" when Brooklyn said he wanted to accompany her on the charity visit.

A source said: "She thinks it will help Brooklyn keep his feet on the ground."

Victoria and David - who live in upmarket Beverly Hills - have two other sons, Romeo, seven, and four-year-old Cruz.
