Peaches Geldof donates dress to charity

Bob Geldof's wildchild daughter Peaches is showing off her giving side by donating one of her favorite dresses to charity.

The socialite and TV presenter is taking part in the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children's (NSPCC) Clothes Aid appeal, which encourages the public to bid for celebrity fashion garments.

Geldof has handed over a patterned print dress to the cause.

A statement on the NSPCC's website reads, "(It is) in great condition and Peaches has been seen out and about in it. Peaches is a supporter of the NSPCC and would like as many bids as possible placed so that plenty of funds can be raised for the NSPCC."

In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, Geldof writes, "Bid on my dress for the NSPCC Clothes Aid charity: One of my much-loved wardrobe faves is up for grabs 4 a good cause! To bid on my dress for charity click the link."

She then directs her fans to the Clothes Aid website, where devotees can bid on celebrity clothes by donating their own wardrobe items.
