26 July 2012

Dan Gillespie Sells, lead singer of The Feeling and Charlie Condou, star of British soap Coronation Street have become patrons of gay youth homeless charity.

The Albert Kennedy Trust (AKT) works with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people aged 16 to 25 who are homeless or living in a hostile environment. It helps them find a safe place to live and fulfill their potential.

Pop singer Gillespie Sells has already been a supporter of the AKT for around three years. He is also a patron of another LGBT young people’s organization, Student Pride.

Charlie Condou, Guardian columnist and star of Britain’s longest-running TV soap opera, follows in the footsteps of two other Coronation Street cast members, Antony Cotton and Julie Hesmondhalgh, who are already patrons for the trust.
