Meet our Patron Dermot O'Leary We are delighted and honoured to have radio and TV star, Dermot O’Leary, as our charity’s patron. Coming from a proud Irish background, Dermot will be supporting our work in providing care, community and culture to the Irish in London. Dermot O’Leary’s television and radio work has made him a household name. It’s a big honour for me to become a patron of the LIC Charity. I’m very proud of my Irish heritage, my parents were part of the post war generation of immigrants who came to London to find a new life, so the London Irish community is one that is very close to my heart. I’m looking forward to helping LIC Charity both promote Irish culture and to help them with their equally important role of helping the vulnerable in the local community. - Dermot O’Leary on his patronage. We are absolutely delighted that Dermot has agreed to be patron of the London Irish Centre charity. He will work with us in our role of promoting the very best in Irish arts and culture and ensuring that those Irish in London who need help are supported and able to access the services they need and deserve. We very much look forward to working with Dermot as we expand and develop our services in ways that will address the needs of the community we serve.
