Who We Are
Unlike many other charities, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland has no paid directors or board members, thus ensuring that vital money raised goes directly to helping children. This way we can supply services, equipment and support to children across the whole of Ireland through our fundraising and donations given to our charity.
In December 2012 Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ireland announced Simon Delaney as our new Patron.
A renowned actor both here and Internationally, Simon is a well known face on stage and screen. Simon’s TV acting credits include Bachelor’s Walk, Roy, The Good Wife, Moone Boy, The Fall and more recently he even popped up on Coronation Street and Emmerdale!
Simon is also a regular presenter on Ireland:am. On the big screen he has appeared alongside Sean Penn in This Must Be The Place and with Vince Vaughn in The Delivery Man, as well as roles in Alan Partridge and The Conjuring 2.
We are so delighted to have Simon as part of our team!
