Washington, Jan 12 (ANI): British comedian Russell Brand has offered his support to the charity that helped him overcome his drug problems.

Brand, a former heroin addict, credits charity Focus 12 for helping to beat his drug issues.

However, the charity faces closure after the British government stopped funding it.

And now Brand has extended his support by joining a campaign to keep the charity open.

“Thankfully, we have two high-level patrons without whom I don”t think we would have survived. Both are still very much a part of the charity and want to help,” Contactmusic quoted Focus 21 boss Chip Somers, as saying. (ANI)
