Jeremy Irons Attends SeriousFun London Gala

Paul Newman founded the SeriousFun Children’s Network in 1988 and the UK gala at the Roundhouse in London was honouring Newman and raising money for the charity.

Joining Jeremy Irons and Sinead Cusack at the event were Renee Zellweger, Danny DeVito and singers Corinne Bailey Rae and David Gray.

Jeremy Irons said he is a “great admirer” of the charity, adding that Newman had “the element of the child” in him.

“He loved life. And I think he wanted to give kids in this situation the opportunity to have a bit of life in the short time they had left or while they were going through this difficult time,” he said.  Irons said Newman would have been “thrilled” about the event.

The London gala is the final of three galas the organisation hosted this year to honour Newman’s legacy during what would have been his 90th year.  Newman’s Own Foundation has been providing support to camps and programmes around the world since the charity began.  Funds raised at the galas will also benefit the UK camp which is called Over The Wall.
