Charity for health

Supporting healthcare organizations is an important part of Eddie Redmayne's charity work. I have collected informations about his activities related to this topic.

Not Another Burns Night - London, March 3, 2008
Eddie Redmayne attended at the annual "Not Another Burns Night" bash, hosted by Ewan McGregor.
The celebrity-filled charity event was held in London at the St. Martin's Lane Hotel in Covent Garden to raise money for a Scottish children's hospital. Ewan even got up on stage and sang for guests, who included KT Tunstall, Bill Nighy, and Jonathan Ryhs Meyers. ( x Photos source ( 1 ) & ( 2 )

Rainbow Trust Carol Concert
December 1, 2010
The traditional carol concert held in the beautiful St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, London, raises funds for Rainbow Trust. 
There was a wonderful array of Christmas carols, performances and readings.
Eddie participated in the concert as a reader.

The charity provides emotional and practical support for families 
who have a child with a life threatening illness.

Teenage Cancer Trust Ambassador
March 12, 2012 - Having been involved with the charity for years, 
Eddie confirmed his support when he visited the Teenage Cancer Trust's specialist unit in London to look around. He said: "Teenage Cancer Trust is a truly brilliant charity. Meeting both the staff and patients is incredibly inspiring. The atmosphere created in the units is something else- you don't feel like you're in a hospital. I'm trilled to support the charity and look forward to meeting many more inspirational young people." ( x )

END 7Eddie along with Emily Blunt, Tom Felton, Priyanka Chopra and others have joined the END 7 Campaign.
END7 aims to raise the public awareness and funding required to cover the cost of distributing medicine and setting up treatment programs for NTDs. A big problem is that NTDs affect neglected communities — the world’s poorest people. So END7 is about providing them with a voice to help address a big problem.
