by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 17, 2018

Damian is back in the UK from New York not just for Game4Grenfell, but he is also lined up to play in yet another charity event, a cricket match for Chance to Shine, a UK charity that spreads the power of cricket through schools and communities.

The event is scheduled for Tuesday, September 12 at the Getty Estate at Wormsley and will feature a full day’s entertainment, as a team of renowned authors face off against a star-studded side of entertainers. The day includes much more than a cricket match.  Guests can also look forward to pitchside music, stand-up comedy and a tour of the world-renowned Getty Library.  And there will be an auction in aid of Chance to Shine.

We all know Damian Lewis is a proud patron of Cure EB, formally Sohana Research Fund. Damian ROCKED the trading floor on Charity Day in 2014 picking up the phones to help raise money for Sohana Research Fund/Cure EB as well as Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

And today he was BACK on the trading floor, this time at GFI Group, now a division of BGC partners, representing Cure EB/Sohana Research Fund to help raise funds and find a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa, to make the world a better place for the bravest girl he has ever known and all the butterfly kids out there.

Well, he may call himself a muppet but Damian plays more like a professional baller in Game for Grenfell!

Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer, two former football stars, put together Game4Grenfell, a football match between two amazing teams of football stars and non-football stars at Queen Park Rangers’ (QPR) Loftus Road Stadium “to raise funds and inspire hope for those affected” by the Grenfell Tower fire that caused at least 80 deaths and more than 70 injuries back in June.

And while we are all on the same side at Game4Grenfell; on the side of the victims, their families, and the larger Lancaster West Estatecommunity, when asked by Game4Grenfell the following question, I have only one answer:

By David Churchill – Evening Standard – September 1, 2017

Damian has one aim when he takes to the pitch for tomorrow’s Grenfell Tower charity football match — to avoid the kind of humiliation he suffered at the feet of one of the world’s greatest players.

This time Lewis, who grew up near Grenfell Tower, will be playing alongside stars including Sir Mo Farah, Olly Murs, Tinie Tempah and Alan Shearer at Loftus Road, home of Queens Park Rangers. Funds raised will go through London Community Foundation to the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund before being distributed to survivors, and towards community projects.
