Take That: Robbie Williams Gives

by | 2nd, July 2007

WHAT a pity Robbie Williams didn’t join his former Take That mates on stage at Wembley last night. What a fitting gesture that would have been for the King of Self-Pity to honour the memory of the Queen of Hearts.

Still, despite not making it to the Diana concert, our national treasure has once again revealed his charitable side, this time in the welcomed form of a £1.5million donation to a Stoke-on-Trent charity.

The LA-based superstar donated the cash to the Give It Sum charity he set up with Comic Relief, with youngsters battling drink and drug problems expected to benefit from the cash injection.

The 33-year former addict says: “I’m glad the little help I give can raise the profile of things like this. I want to be more active in and around Stoke-on-Trent – the place I live and where I’ll eventually return to.”

According to the Mirror, Williams has now given a total of £3million to charity, with the hand-written lyrics to his smash-hit Angels, raising £27,000 alone.

The lyrics to Rudebox raised, a rumoured, 50p.
