Kate Moss models a one-off, recycled mosquito net dress, designed by British Designer William Tempest in photo campaign for Sport Relief, an annual fundraiser occurring throughout the UK this weekend. Funds will be raised for insecticide-treated mosquito netting to prevent the spread of malaria. Hear from Moss, after the jump.
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 malaria nets, is absolutely gorgeous. It's a great way of raising awareness of the seriousness of malaria. Donating just £5 can pay for a net which helps protect from potentially fatal mosquito bites that spread malaria.

Visit Sport Relief to join the Mile and other activities throughout the UK, starting tomorrow, March 19.
