|direct quote from Emma, thanks to the press office
"It's been an incredibly difficult decision to make to leave but I feel that after four and a half years playing Charity it is time to move on. I still can't believe how lucky I have been to be trusted with so many fantastic storylines and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every minute. I will be desperately sad to say goodbye to everyone but there are so many other roles that I would like to try and it's important to me that Charity leaves on a high."26th July 2004
Charity made her first appearance at cousin Butch's funeral.
Charity was Born in 1978 (according to all the official books).
Her exact parentage and family details have yet to be fully revealed. However it has been suggested once in the past that she is the daughter of Zak's cousin Obadiah Dingle. However she refers to Peg (Zak's Mum) as "Nan" and calls Zak "uncle."
To add further confusion to Charity's parentage, on the 25th December 2003 Marlon referred to her as his "cousin twice removed." We know Marlon is Zak's nephew and Peg's grandson.
Both children Charity has given away for adoption.

During the week beginning 14th October 2002 Charity revealed to her sister-in-law Zoe that she had a child some years ago that she had given up for adoption. Three months later it would be revealed that Charity had the child when she was thirteen, 13 years before (which isn't consistant with her officially given birth year) and the father was none other than her cousin Cain Dingle.
On the 24th December 2002 Debbie Jones arrived in Emmerdale and soon tracked down her real parents. Up until that point Cain didn't even know he had a daughter.
