Daniel Radcliffe attended a charity auction in aid of Get Connected

Daniel was co-hosting the charity event in aid of Get Connected last night. Daniel has been their "best friend" for some years now. Read some more about the charity below. I have asked for approval from photographer Paul Baird to post more pictures, when I get it the pictures will be added.


Some parts from the press release by Get Connected:

The auction raised £270,000 with winning bids reaching £8,000 for a private box to see Jay Z and Kanye West and £20,000 for a weekend on a super yacht. All proceeds will go directly towards the Get Connected helpline, ensuring that young people know that Get Connected is there for them, and training and expanding the team of Helpline Volunteers who provide young people with the help that they need, 365 days a year.

So many young people are facing really tough times and have no idea where to turn to for help. I’m delighted to support Get Connected and its Helpline Volunteers, who give up their time to support the thousands of young people who call in desperate need of help” said Daniel.

Daniel, who is the charity’s ‘Best Friend’, met forty very excited members of Teen Rock Choir who performed during the evening. The singers were aged between 10 and 24, representing the ages of the 1,500 young people who call the Get Connected helpline 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.
