Countdown host Nick Hewer will be hosting a charity dinner on January 31 at the Rooftop Gardens in Norwich in support of Street Child's Right to Learn appeal.
The appeal is supporting 10,000 vulnerable children in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria to go to school.
Norwich resident and Street Child CEO Tom Dannatt said: 'By ensuring even the most marginalised children are going to school, we can give them a chance to break out of poverty. With your support, we will help thousands of children learn to read and write, and empower them for the future.'
Mr Hewer said: 'It's a very simple proposition. If a kid runs away from a home, for whatever reason, they can't go to school, and if a child doesn't go to school it harms its chance of a future.
'We get them back to their parents and talk to their parents about what the problems are.'
