Michael supports a number of causes that are close to his heart for many reasons and which he passionately believes in.
I believe strongly in giving back to the community. We are all here together and it’s important to support each other.
One for the Boys

One for the Boys, founded by Sofia Davis with Samuel L Jackson as its Chairman, is a charity that aims to raise awareness about cancers that affect men. It is a cause that Michael wholeheartedly supports: he cooked at the partnership dinner at Harrods to launch the campaign, and in 2014 prepared a fabulous meal in the Natural History Museum for the One for the Boys Fashion Ball.

“Cancer still strikes far too many, and there is less awareness than there should be about cancers that affect men. One for the Boys is a charity that I am proud to be involved with.”

The main mission of One for the Boys is simply to get men talking about cancer by removing the myths around it, and helping them to change their attitudes towards their health. This is achieved by educating men through awareness campaigns and live clinics to know the signs associated with cancer. This will encourage them to seek help and allow for the early detection that can save lives. www.onefortheboys.com

Down Syndrome International and Association

Children and adults with Down Syndrome are all unique individuals with their own personalities, family backgrounds and preferences that make them who they are. The Down Syndrome Association has over the past 50 years made amazing strides forward to help individuals and families to live, thrive and surpass their expectations. Both the International charity and the association are committed to improving quality of life for people with Down syndrome, promoting their right to be included on a full and equal basis with others. Their work extends to employment and education support and guidlines through to early developement and parental support. Both charities, Michael is proud to support and help raise awareness.

“It is a joy to hear and celebrate the stories of people who have overcome adversity, as well as to celebrate the achievements of this dynamic charity.”
