Over the years Soccer Aid has raised over £17million for Unicef's work for children in danger. This year, the UK government will match every penny raised through the event, meaning we'll be able to provide even more children like those in Ethiopia suffering from malnutrition with the support they so urgently need.

With the Formula One season in full flow, you could be forgiven for thinking that my life at the moment is focused on non-stop training, qualifying and racing. It's often difficult to find time for anything else, but earlier this month I was able to visit Haiti with Unicef, the world's leading children's organisation, to make an appeal film for this year's Soccer Aid, which returns for the fifth time on Sunday 8 June.... No child, no matter where they live in the world should go hungry or lose their life because they or their family don't have enough to eat. That's why I'm asking everyone to tune in on June 8 and give what they can.

As a football-obsessed young boy growing up in South Wales I never thought I would have the chance to play at Old Trafford in front of more than 60,000 people. If you'd told me I'd be captaining a team filled with a host of football legends and Hollywood stars I would have laughed. Playing in Soccer Aid sometimes does feel like a bit of a dream - I know the other guys involved also treasure this unique experience. But when I lead the Rest of the World team out on 8 June, it won't just be football on my mind; because there's a bigger reason why we come together every two years for this extraordinary football match.

Even for the non football fans amongst us, it would have been hard to not get caught up in the drama that unfolded on our screens over the weekend as Manchester City clinched the Premiership title from their neighbours by the narrowest of margins. So dramatic were those last few moments, the sense of elation and despair of the fans and players was almost palpable. In its finest hour, football really can make you feel like you are part of something big.
