Daniel Radcliffe Does Good (Demelza Hospice Care For Children)

Mondays can be somewhat dreary so I’ve decided that every Monday The Bellissimo Files are going to celebrate the good work Hollywood stars are doing, in a section called Hollywood Does Good.

Seeing as this past weekend has been all about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (it broke TheTwilight Saga: Eclipse’s $30 million US midnight record by taking in $43.5million and also had the biggest ever US opening weekend by taking in a whopping $168.55million) I thought it fitting to turn the spotlight on Daniel Radcliffe.

Harry Potter has made him one of the most well loved stars in the world and it has been a nice little cash earner for him. However, Daniel doesn’t keep this all to himself, he uses his fame and money for good too. Daniel is involved in a lot of charity work. His charity of choice is Demelza Hospice Care for Children

Demelza Hospice Care for Children is “the only children’s residential hospice covering Kent, East Sussex and South East London. Demelza provides end of life care, bereavement support, short break respite and other specialist care to over 700 families.

Demelza offers families who are caring for a child who has a life-limiting illness or a serious medical condition, care and support, helping them through this sad and difficult time.”

Demelza’s Mission is:
“To provide a needs led specialist care service to children and young people who are unlikely to reach adulthood.

We support the family as a whole by working in partnership with the local community and professionals to provide choice, an improved quality of life and individual expert care.”

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
