FeedNHS Expands Fundraising Efforts – May 16, 2020

Rolling Out the Nationwide Campaign

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | May 16, 2020

FeedNHS is expanding its fundraising efforts from £1M to £2M. So far, £1,239,800 (*updated June 12) has been raised of the £2,000,000 target (61%). Just launched on March 27, it took the coalition only 10 days to raise the first £1M. And now they want to do it again in order to expand nationwide.

For more information, visit their FeedNHS website here and to donate, please visit the JustGiving campaign here. Here is a recent story Damian and Helen shared online:

“Hi, we’ve been raising as much money as we can to help feed NHS workers one healthy meal each day. We started in the hardest hit London hospitals and with the help of our coalition partners we’ve now taken it nationwide.

We had a target to raise 1 million pounds for our scheme and thanks to the public’s overwhelming generosity we’ve raised it. Thank you! But as more hospitals have heard about what we’re doing it’s become clear that we mustn’t stop. So our aim now is to raise 2 million (in total ) which will enable us to feed even more hospital workers across the nation. So if you can, and we know not everyone can, please donate. With you, we know we can make up the difference.

We’re Damian and Helen and like all the best things in life, this started with a chat to a friend.”

Premier League Clubs and Their Most Famous Celebrity Fan – Oct 13, 2018

Liverpool Football Club Has a Fan for Life

by Ted Winters | The Sports Daily | October 12, 2018

Celebrities often get behind and endorse their chosen sports team on a regular basis that provides a wealth of additional exposure that can only go down as a major marketing boost.

But which of the top five Premier League clubs has the biggest fan to help pack the ultimate marketing punch?

Liverpool

Liverpool can boast a plethora of famous supporters (Liam Neeson, Lana Del Rey, Mike Myers) all around the world but probably the hottest right now is Damian Lewis.

The actor can be seen everywhere at the moment and refuses to keep his colours close to his chest often spotted at Anfield when he gets the chance.

Manchester United

It turns out that singer, actor, dancer and ladies man Justin Timberlake is a fan of the Red Devils.

The former NSYNC star is often captured sporting a Manchester United beanie and quite simply due to his huge following can attract millions of eyes upon the red club of Manchester.

Although the Red Devils following is huge, any extra little help is never a bad thing.

Manchester City

Without doubt the Citizens most vocal supporter is former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher.

His brother Liam is also a stanch City fan, but it is Noel who is often spotted at the Etihad stadium and is a regular on sports radio shows chatting about his beloved club and heaping praise on the current crop under manager Pep Guardiola.

Damian Lewis: An actor at the top of his game

Damian Lewis’s new film focuses on football. He talks to Kaleem Aftab about sport, politics and the problems of acting with Keira Knightley

The Independent Culture

Football is a funny game with a strange habit of dividing families and testing loyalties. In any other circumstance, Damian Lewis would never dream of highlighting any differences he and his wife, the actress Helen McCrory, have over bringing up their children; indeed they always show the upmost discretion in interviews, but the beautiful game brings out a rarely seen masculine tribal instinct in Lewis.
