What could possibly connect the world's favourite boy band, the Prime Minister, Ginny Weasley and one of the world's most successful businessmen? 

Well, just last week, One Direction, David Cameron, Bonnie Wright and Bill Gates, not to mention thousands of others, came together to celebrate the launch of Enough food for everyone IF in order to combat the world's most fatal and unnecessary injustice - global hunger. 

IF across the UK

In Cardiff people braved the snow to inflate enormous IF letters ("OS" in Welsh!), and school children in Glasgow brought IF to Scotland with a splash. In London hundreds of supporters braved the chilly night at Somerset House, where a dazzling projection, inspiring speakers and an urban choir launched the campaign. 

So, why not join Lauren Laverne (above), Bill Nighy and 43,000 people across the UK and sign up?
