David Walliams OBE has been announced as Ambassador of The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury and neurodisability. David has supported The Children’s Trust for several years, most recently visiting the charity’s headquarters on Christmas Day to read from one of his books to the children. He also hosted a fundraising event for The Children’s Trust and Skillforce in November, where he met Alfie Russell who spoke about his achievements since his brain injury aged nine. David said: “I am absolutely thrilled to become an Ambassador for The Children’s Trust. It’s a charity I care greatly about, and every time I visit I am struck by its warm, caring atmosphere and the dedication of its staff. The Children’s Trust is a very special place with incredibly inspiring young people. I feel very proud to be involved.” Dalton Leong, Chief Executive at The Children’s Trust, said: “We are truly honoured to have David’s support. He will be helping to raise awareness of brain injury and our work supporting thousands of children every year. Over the past few years, David has generously given us a lot of his time, hosting fundraising events and reading to the children, which really brightens their spirits and helps with their rehabilitation.” This information originally appeared on The Children’s Trust website.
