Example - Example Appointed Cancer Trust Ambassador

Subscribe to Example alerts

British hip-hop star Example is joining Noel and Liam Gallagher, Paul Weller and Kasabian as the latest ambassador of a U.K. cancer charity for teens.

The rapper, real name Elliot Gleave, has agreed to help promote and raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust, which The Who rocker Roger Daltrey founded in 2000.

Last year (12), the Stay Awake hitmaker performed at concerts held to benefit the organisation at London's Royal Albert Hall, and he admits he is looking forward to getting more involved with the trust.

Example says, "When Teenage Cancer Trust asked me to be an ambassador I was honoured. After meeting many of the young people at my Royal Albert Hall show and visiting five of the (hospital) units to see the work they do first hand, there was no way I could refuse.

"It's important to feel like an individual rather than a patient and to meet other young people who you can relate to, and Teenage Cancer Trust makes this happen."

To raise money for the charity, Example is auctioning the Versace jacket he wore to the Brit Awards last year (12) and an autographed pair of shoes via eBay.com.
