Kate Moss, seen here in a William Tempest tube dress (made partly of recycled mosquito nets), is helping Sport Relief tackling malaria.

Both the supermodel and the designer are urging the UK public to get involved and raise money for Sport Relief which could be spent on a life-saving fabric you won’t see on the catwalk – long-lasting, insecticide-treated mosquito nets, one of the easiest and most cost-effective methods of preventing the spread of malaria.


“I was shocked to hear that one child dies from malaria in Africa every 30 seconds, that’s why I was happy to be involved in this important project for Sport Relief. William Tempest’s dress, which incorporates recycled mosquito nets is absolutely gorgeous, I loved wearing it and working with William. It’s a great way of raising awareness of the seriousness of malaria, a disease which is both preventable and treatable. Donating just £5 can pay for a net which helps protect from potentially fatal mosquito bites that spread malaria.”

William Tempest added:


“I’m really proud and excited to have designed a dress for Sport Relief with the serious message of highlighting the power of the humble mosquito net as a life-saving tool against malaria.

“To help raise awareness about malaria I designed a structured dress which incorporates layers of a mosquito net in panels. Kate looks amazing in the dress and I hope its auction will raise lots of money and bring awareness to such a great cause."


Over one million lives are lost every year because of malaria - even though it is both preventable and treatable.

The money raised through Sport Relief is spent by Comic Relief to help poor and disadvantaged people, living unimaginably tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries.
