British charity One Parent Families recently announced that Harry Potter author JK Rowling has accepted the position as their new President. The charity is close to Ms. Rowling's heart and she has been actively raising awareness of the problems facing one-parent families since 2000 when she was named its first ambassador.
On accepting the position Rowling said:
I am truly honoured to be made President of One Parent Families, whom I have supported for the last four years. It is gratifying to be a part of a charity which works so hard to support single parents at ground level, while giving them a voice in the national arena.
