Get Connected (2013)

Daniel Radcliffe shows his support for young people in crisis

Daniel Radcliffe showed his support for young people in crisis last night, at a charity auction for Get Connected – the UK’s only free and confidential helpline for young people under 25.

The film and stage actor attended the charity’s annual Dinner and Charity Auction, in partnership with Carphone Warehouse, in the unique surroundings of the Underglobe, located beneath Shakespeare’s iconic Globe Theatre. Also in attendance were a host of celebrities including Strictly’s Anton du Beke, who was Master of Ceremonies, as well Erin Boag and fellow dancers James and Ola Jordan. Spelbound provided the entertainment and sports legends Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell hosted the live auction.

The evening raised a total of £182,500. All proceeds will go directly towards providing the Get Connected helpline, ensuring that young people know that Get Connected is there for them, and expanding the team of Helpline Volunteers who provide young people with the help that they need, 365 days a year.

Daniel, 23, has been a long-standing supporter of Get Connected, which helps under-25s with absolutely any problem.

“It’s a great privilege to support Get Connected. Their important helpline service makes sure that young people in the UK never have to face their problems alone. Tonight I’ve been honored to meet some of their amazing Helpline Volunteers, who are dedicated to giving support for young people when things get tough”

Daniel, who is the charity’s ‘Best Friend’ also took time to meet Britain’s Got Talent winners Spelbound, who provided a spectacular display during the evening. These talented gymnasts are all aged between 12 and 22, and represent the ages of many of the 1,500 young people who contact Get Connected every week.

These young people, who contact the Helpline by phone, webchat, text, and e-mail, are seeking help and support for a range of issues including homelessness, bullying, self-harm, anorexia, addiction and suicide.

The Get Connected Dinner and Charity Auction is organized in partnership with Carphone Warehouse, the charity’s principal corporate partner, and the evening was also attended by Chairman Sir Charles Dunstone, Chief Executive Andrew Harrison and many of its Directors and staff.

“Our vision is to help make people’s lives better through technology and that’s why we’re proud to support Get Connected. This is the most important event in our fundraising calendar, and I’m delighted to see so many people here this evening helping to make a positive difference to the lives of thousands of young people.” Sir Charles Dunstone

“We are overwhelmed by the fantastic support Get Connected received at our fundraising auction,” commented Fiona Clark, Chief Executive of Get Connected. “I’m so grateful to Daniel for his support as well as Carphone Warehouse and all the sponsors who so generously donated and bought our auction lots. Last year, 70,000 young people contacted Get Connected; the funds raised at the auction will enable us to connect even more young people to the help they need in 2013.”
