November 28 Brad Pitt donates £700 to Southampton baby unit

A charity organiser said she managed to get Brad Pitt to donate £700 to a baby unit while he was filming in Dorset.

Tricia Wilson-Hughes, who works at a gift shop in Lulworth, had managed to raise £40 from the crew of the zombie film World War Z, during a whip round.

But then she saw Pitt’s security guard and asked him if the star could donate and the guard returned with £700.

Ms Wilson-Hughes is raising money for Southampton hospital’s neonatal unit where a friend’s baby was treated.

Zachary Gallagher, who is now 18 weeks old, was born with gastroschisis and was in intensive care for nine weeks.

It is a condition where part of the bowel protrudes through the abdomen.

Ms Wilson-Hughes said she was worried the filming might impact on a fundraising event in Lulworth on Saturday and wanted to see if the actor could help.

You hear negative stories about A-listers but I won’t hear a wrong word against [Brad], I am in awe of him”

“I wasn’t too bothered if I didn’t see Brad Pitt… [but] I felt I had to do something for the charity,” she said.

“I was going round the crew as they passed the gift shop. They were putting in £5 notes… one asked me if we took cards.”

She said when she spotted Pitt’s security guards she asked for a small donation “of maybe £50″.

“[The guard] came back about 10 minutes later and said this is off Brad for your charity.

“He said there’s £700 in there, I couldn’t believe it, I was completely dumbstruck. He said if he had more he would have given it.”
