Since then he has helped the agency launch the youth fundraising scheme Fast Track, and has been interviewed for its Between the Lines magazine for young people. Cathy Corcoran, head of external relations said: "Dermot is a valued supporter ..We are delighted to have support from such a high profile celebrity. Of course the £32,000 will help us with our work overseas." Dermot is currently appearing in BBC's SAS - Are you Tough Enough?
