The Prince’s Trust today sent out an email containing a quote from Benedict Cumberbatch thanking everyone who was kind enough to donate to our fundraiser this year in honour of The Princes Trust.
“I’m so proud of my fans and the importance they’ve seen in helping a cause I am so fervently enthralled to.
I’ve been incredibly fortunate over the years. I always knew that I wanted to work as an actor and have been extremely lucky to get where I am today. It hasn’t been without hard work and determination, but a key ingredient to anyone’s self-confidence and personal success, is the support and guidance that comes from having a role model.
I also know that many young people don’t have such opportunities. With no role model, life can be daunting and self-esteem can drop making it harder to ask for help. It’s a vicious cycle. That’s why I am a Prince’s Trust Ambassador – believing every young person deserves a chance in life is a vision we both share.”
