Matthew Lewis was presented with an honorary degree from Leeds Metropolitan University!
According to BBC:
The 23-year-old actor, who was born and raised in the city, received the honour for his contribution to the arts and his charity work.
In 2010, he helped launch a cancer screening suite at St James’s Hospital in Leeds, and last year he joined the Leeds 10km walk for local charity, the Martin House Hospice.
The actor said: “I still live in Leeds and to be acknowledged in this way is quite overwhelming.”
We are so proud of Lewis’ great work! He’s not the only one being honored this week. Others include England Rugby Union head coach Stuart Lancaster, fashion designer Wayne Hemingway, Olympic torch designer Edward Barber and chairman of Huddersfield Town, Dean Hoyle.
