Epidermolysis Bullosa is a genetic skin blistering condition that affects over 500,000 people around the world, but very few people have heard of it. Those who have realise what a devastating impact it has on sufferers and their families. It is unrelenting in its pain and unrelenting in the distress it causes.

“A Night of Reggae” for Save the Children UK was a hit. An audience including Sir Michael Caine, Colin Firth, Damian Lewis, Helena Bonham Carter and Mike Skinner from The Streets was delighted by the feelgood tunes from Jimmy Cliff, UB40 refugees Ali Campbell and Astro and reggae’s finest rhythm section Sly and Robbie.
At the beginning of October, the children’s charity Scene & Heard played host to a star studded event held at the 20th Century Theatre in Notting Hill. The evening included champagne, canapés, the performance of plays written by Scene & Heard’s child playwrights, and an auction.
Famous faces included patrons Damian Lewis (the host), Helen McCrory, Tim Pigott-Smith, Tom Goodman- Hill, Twiggy Lawson and Jonathon Pryce.
Scene & Heard is a unique mentoring project that partners the inner-city children of Somers Town, London with volunteer theatre professionals. They give children intensive, one-to-one adult attention, enabling them to write plays which are then performed by professional actors. For many years, this vibrant charity has created astonishing and extraordinary theatre.
