Rufus Hound

     

Rufus Hound is an actor and a comedian. And a presenter. And a painter. And a decorator (quotes available).

Currently appearing in the successful Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at The Savoy.

Rufus Hound’s first experience of CMV came when he helped a fellow comedian raise money for a couple who needed a special wheelchair for their son, Theo, a CMV baby. Little did he know that he’d end up as Patron to the charity supporting congenital CMV sufferers and their families.

In 2012 he acted as auctioneer at a Charity Ball which raised £8,600 for CMV Action and his support for our charity has grown from there. Later that year, he and his wife, Beth, represented us on All Star Mr & Mrs, earning £5,000 for the charity, and he reprised his role as celebrity auctioneer at CMV Action’s inaugural Charity Ball in March 2014, when we raised over £18,600. In 2015 he was on 15 to 1 winning a staggering £11,000 and on The Cube where he won £1000.

We are incredibly grateful for his help in raising funds for CMV Action but we are also very excited that he has agreed to become our Patron – we value his passion & willingness to speak out about important issues, and feel those qualities will be invaluable as we raise awareness of the devastating virus that is CMV.
