Damian and Helen on Magic/Scala Radio for a Good Cause – Sept 30, 2020

Bauer Stations to Support The Prince’s Trust

by Staff | RadioToday UK | September 30, 2020

UPDATE: Listen here

On Tuesday 13th October, actor and producer, Damian Lewis, best known for his appearances in Band of Brothers, Billions and Homeland, joined Simon Mayo to speak about his experiences as an Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust.

“To work with a charity that was targeting very specifically young people in this country, and grabbing them at the point where they might take a wrong turning, or might have just taken a wrong turning, but, it’s still an opportunity to steer them back on the right course, was brilliant.”

Lewis also spoke of Leon McGhie, who was awarded the Prince’s Trust Homesense Young Achiever award in 2019, who had his head turned through gang culture, and had been stabbed 5 times. “He approached the Prince’s Trust, took on their course which is called Team, not realising that the course was delivered by the MET police, and he turned his life around.”

Damian Lewis moves up in the ranks, from #46 last year to #38 this year. Congrats!

Meet the most influential people in London. The new London Power 100 was published today, which is an annual list of the 100 most influential people in London and includes a wide variety of high achievers and power players in the city and from the city of London.

From June each year, two teams of researchers begin curating and researching names for the list which are put forward to a panel of judges for consideration. This part of the process referred to as the “nominating process” is open to the public who can submit their suggestions to the judges via email.

From early November the judging panel begin scrutinizing the list and place individuals put forward in order, taking into consideration their achievements both past and present. Following which, the President of London Power 100 is advised of the final list by the middle of January. After reviewing, the list is published in March.

President Nicholas Taylor stated, “I have had the pleasure of working with and alongside many local businesses, entrepreneurs, charities and media personalities across film, music, and sport who have in some way influenced London’s landscape. It is not surprising that 2020’s list is made up of individuals who have in some way left their mark on the City, both past and present, from a broad spectrum of skill sets. Congratulations to this year’s inductees.”

Major stars such as Idris Elba, Benedict Cumberbatch, Damian Lewis, Naomie Harris, Tom Hiddleston, Cara Delevingne, Letitia Wright, David Beckham, Gavin Rossdale, Rita Ora and Mo Farah joined veteran Londoners Sir Michael Caine, Dame Helen Mirren, and Dame Joan Collins on the list, which also features royalty like Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Charles, Prince of Wales, along with politicians, restaurateurs and business leaders.

Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory Attend Prince’s Trust Garden Party

Marking 40 Years of The Prince’s Trust

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | May 17, 2016

The Prince of Wales hosted a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace today, May 17, 2016 to mark 40 years of His Royal Highness’s charity The Prince’s Trust.

The Prince was joined by Prince’s Trust Ambassadors, including Sir Ben Kingsley, Sir Roger Moore, Fearne Cotton and Pixie Lott, alongside more than 5,000 of the charity’s supporters and beneficiaries. In the last 40 years, the charity has supported 825,000 young people.

During the garden party Dame Joan Collins and Gemma Arterton presented His Royal Highness with a portrait of himself created from hundreds of images of people whose lives have been touched by the work of The Prince’s Trust.

A digital book of memories containing messages recorded by young people and supporters of The Prince’s Trust was also presented to The Prince by Sir Ben Kingsley.

The Prince’s Trust was founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, and supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed, struggling at school or at risk of exclusion.

Many of the young people helped by The Prince’s Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law. The Trust’s programmes give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilize their lives, helping to develop self-esteem and skills for work.
