VIDEO: Huberman and Gleeson get immature to raise money for hospice

The actors are among 50 acclaimed actors, writers, producers and film crew who have put their time into the project to raise money for St Frances’ Hospice.

SOME OF IRELAND’S most popular actors have joined forces with talented film crew to make some immature videos for a very good cause.

Immaturity For Charity – which bills itself as ‘a lowbrow comedy fundraiser’ – sees actors like Domhnall Gleeson, Amy Huberman, Brendan Gleeson (Domhnall’s dad and legendary Irish actor), Robert Sheehan and more embarrassing the hell out of themselves for charity.

The aim is to raise money for St Francis Hospice in Raheny, where people with terminal illnesses can spend their final days. It costs €250,000 a month to keep the hospice open, and the funds raised will go towards this, as well as towards another unit in Blanchardstown which can’t afford to open yet.

The latter unit has 24 beds but is lying empty and unused because of a lack of funding. At the helm of the project is the TV and film director John Butler, and so far Immaturity for Charity has raised €65,000.

However, there’s still a need for more support, so all of the shows have been put online to help raise more awareness for the hospice.

It doesn’t cost anything to watch them, but you can donate by clicking here.

Here’s one of the sketches – to watch the rest of them, visit the website.
