Former Eurythmics singer Annie Lennox is to receive the 2011 Cause Celebre prize which is bestowed every 10 years on the celebrity who has participated in the highest number of good causes in the previous decade.
From 2000 to 2010, the Aberdeen born singer has featured in Amnesty International and Greenpeace rallies as well as Nelson Mandela's 46664 and Tretament Action campaigns, which try to maximise education and health care for HIV sufferers.
Lennox has also led pro-Gaza rallies in London as well as spearheading protests against Pope Benedict's anti-condom policy and the autocratic regime in Burma.
Last year she was awarded the OBE for services to Oxfam.
The Cause Celebre Awards Ceremony will be held in London's Grosvenor Hotel in August 2011.
Unfortunately, Lennox will be absent as she will be attending the launch of a campaign against the use of blood diamonds to finance wars in Africa.
