Ray was delighted to be presented with his accolade and assured everyone in the audience that he would do all he could to help as the wonderful charity which helps sick, disabled and disadvantaged children.

Ray commented:

“I am thrilled and honoured to be part of such an incredible Charity. Variety’s work with children and young people is awe-inspiring and their dedication and enthusiasm to their cause is second to none. I will do everything I can to support the Charity and help raise the vital funds they require to continue offering their incredible services.”
