George Ezra has been named an official ambassador for mental health charity Mind. The musician has raised over £70,000 for the organisation over the last three years, so it seems only fair.

“We are absolutely delighted to announce George as a Mind Ambassador”, says the charity’s chair, Stevie Spring. “He’s supported a number of our key campaigns and helped raise significant funds for our work. We are almost entirely reliant on voluntary donations, so quite simply couldn’t continue important support services, such as our Infoline, without the generous donations of people like George and his fans”.

Spring continues: “Mind’s Ambassadors are committed, high-profile individuals who help us to spread our message further than we could otherwise reach by fronting campaigns and fundraising events; engaging with the media; and attracting other influential figures to the Mind cause. Seeing our Ambassadors speaking out about mental health can be inspirational for the thousands of people across the country affected by mental health problems, giving them the confidence to come forward and access the support they need”.

Ezra’s first fundraising for Mind in an official capacity will be via two shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 24-25 Sep. Tickets for those go on general sale this Friday.
