'I have always been a great admirer of the work of the Prince's Trust with disadvantaged young people across the U.K.,' the singer who wants to help youths in her hometown said.
Singer Cheryl Cole has met up with British royal Charles, Prince of Wales to discuss the launch of her own charitable foundation in aid of his Trust. The Girls Aloud star is planning to start up a project in April which will help youths in her native Newcastle, England to fulfill their potential.
Cole's organization will be launched in aid of the Prince's Trust, which was set up to support disadvantaged youngsters, and on Tuesday, February 22 the pop star visited the royal to discuss her proposal.
The singer, whose older brother Andrew has endured a series of problems with the police, says, "Too many young people grow up thinking no one cares and don't believe they can make anything of themselves. They have so much potential - but can go off the rails without the right care and support. I want my foundation to help them realize their potential and get their lives on track."
"I have always been a great admirer of the work of the Prince's Trust with disadvantaged young people across the U.K. It's the perfect charity for my foundation to support."
