Eddie Izzard drops in for a chat at Cardiff homelessness charity


eddie_izzardCardiff-based homelessness charity, Llamau, was thrilled when comedian and Hollywood actor, Eddie Izzard, paid a visit last week.

Eddie spent time chatting with the young people that Llamau supports, whilst on the Cardiff leg of his current tour ‘Stripped’.

Staff and service users alike were entertained by Eddie as he found out more about Llamau’s work with homeless young people and vulnerable women in Wales.

Eddie, who spent part of his childhood living in Wales and attended school in Porthcawl, lent his support to Llamau’s annual Christmas Gift Appeal, recognising that Christmas can be a difficult time for many people.

You can join Eddie in supporting homeless young people and vulnerable women in South Wales by donating a gift for a young person this Christmas.

Danny aged 17, said: “Last year, thanks to Llamau, I received my first Christmas present in six years.

“It meant so much to know that someone cared.”

Llamau’s Chief Executive, Frances Beecher, said: “This year we hope to replicate the support we received last year both in financial contributions and with the donation of gifts.

“We would like to thank Eddie Izzard for helping us with our appeal. To know that someone of his standing is interested in our young people and the work that we do is incredible.”
