This week we’re sending our a massive High Five to Giles & Jacqui Cooper. Tomorrow on Saturday 18th July 2015, Giles and Jacqui Cooper, with their two children (Rory aged 12 and Heather aged 10), will be climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland, in aid of the Royal Variety Charity. At 4,409 ft, Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK and the climb will be a total of 10 miles taking around 9 hours.
The Royal Variety Charity assists those who’ve worked professionally in the entertainment industry and are in need of help. The charity strives to support all those, both young and old, who’ve worked on the stage, in the wings, in front of a camera, or behind it and not only offers support to those who’ve found themselves struggling as a result of ill health or financial hardship, but assists youngsters from impoverished backgrounds wishing to enter performing arts education. The Royal Variety Charity also owns and manages a nursing care home for elderly entertainers, Brinsworth House. More information on the work of this great charity can be found at www.royalvarietycharity.org
Giles Cooper is the Chairman of the Royal Variety Charity and one of the Royal Variety Performance’s Executive Producers.
