Mitch Winehouse asks Sarah Harding to become ambassador for Amy Winehouse Foundation

Late singer's father wants the Girls Aloud star to help get the foundation's message across

Amy Winehouse‘s father Mitch has said he is looking to recruit Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding as an ambassador for the newly set-up Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Harding entered rehab earlier this month in a bid to deal with “alcohol and depression issues”, after it was claimed that she’d hit “rock bottom” after splitting from her fiancé Tom Crane last month.

Mitch, who set up the foundation in memory of his daughter, who died earlier this year, has said he sees Harding as the ideal person to get the message out about the foundation’s aim of “helping those struggling with substance abuse”.

He told The Sun:

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.

Mitch confirmed that the foundation has recently made three donations to causes that were close to his daughter’s heart, with £10,000 given to three charities respectively.

An inquest into Amy Winehouse‘s death is set to re-open on Wednesday (October 26).
