Cheryl is thinking about Amy Winehouse's family

Cheryl Cole sent a message of support to Amy Winehouse‘s dad Mitch on the first anniversary of her death yesterday.

The singer, 29, took to Twitter to let taxi driver Mitch know that he was in her thoughts.

‘.. @mitchwinehouse Dear Mitch.. Thinking of you and your family today and sending you all lots of love x,’ Tweeted Cheryl.

Amy was 27 when she passed away from alcohol poisoning at her Camden home last July.

Mitch has since helped to set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which provides support for young people with addictions.

‘Thank you all for your wonderful messages. We miss Amy so much but her/our work will continue. Long live Amy. Mitch,’ he Tweeted on Sunday.
