Ian raised £5,000,000 for theater with his shows recently, they give out grants of 25,000 per production that applies as long as they hire a recent activity graduate as part of the cast. The money is to be used to pay the actors. I admire a lot about him especially his advocacy for human rights. When I lived in London it was always a pleasure to encounter him. By the way he owns a pub in the east end and does the quiz nights sometimes or used to.
