Actor and comedian Matt Lucas has become a patron of a charity set up to remember a Jewish activist who was murdered in Washington DC.
The Little Britain star joins other names including Prince Hassan of Jordon and ready meals tycoon Sir Gulam Noon to help continue the work of former Union of Jewish Students chairman Alan Senitt.
Senitt, 27, was killed as he walked home a female friend in the Georgetown district of the US capital in July. He was working in Washington as a campaign volunteer to US presidential hopeful Mark Warner.
The Alan Senitt Memorial Trust aims to work in a number of areas including helping young British Jews connect with and visit Israel, promote interfaith dialogue and combat anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
A series of events to raise money for the charity will take place in 2007 including a pub quiz, family fun day and gala dinner.
