She wrote: "Both at VBL and personally, we are huge supporters of World AIDS Day. It's such an important day for raising awareness of HIV, breaking down HIV stigma and misinformation, and raising crucial funds to support the life-saving work that still needs to happen, to support the 37.7million people who are currently living with HIV globally. Over the next few slides we've compiled a list of a few brilliant charities that you can follow or donate to to show your support today."

"As a patron of @ejaf founded by my dear friend @eltonjohn, I'm proud to be supporting their mission today and everyday so that we can end AIDS by 2030. Since 1992, The Elton John AIDS Foundation has been one of the leading independent AIDS organisations, raising over $515million to support communities who are most vulnerable to HIV. Committed to ending discrimination, reducing HIV infections and providing life-saving treatments, they are passionate about beating the AIDS epidemic and supporting all those affected."
