Amy Willerton launches online dating charity

Wednesday March 19, 2014

Amy Willerton has turned matchmaker for a very good cause.

The 21-year-old model is fronting a new online dating charity.

'My Mate Your Date' is a new social media fundraising initiative from Macmillan Cancer Support.

It allows people to ask their friends to set them up through Facebook.

Single people are asked to choose friends they want to suggest dates for them over a 30-day period.

They then review the dates, and request introductions if they are interested.

Rather than pay an online dating subscription fee, supporters donate money to the charity for every date suggested.

"Dating for charity is such a clever idea," Amy said.

"I love setting people up so I can't wait to encourage all my friends to get involved and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, to make sure no-one faces cancer alone."
