Louis Tomlinson has had a very busy week!
We reported tonight that he was playing for the Doncaster Rovers Reserve Team in a home match this evening (in fact we liveblogged the whole game) but earlier in the week the One Direction star also continued with his philanthropic work, as he visited a seriously ill boy at Bluebell Wood children’s hospice.
The singer is of course patron for the charity and when he heard the story of the one year old baby, he was so overwhelmed that he asked to meet with him and his family.
1-year-old Harrison from Sheffield was diagnosed with meningitis when he was only three weeks old. Doctors felt it was too late to save the infant and advised his parents to take him to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice to spend his final few days.
The little one turned out to be a fighter and has survived, despite the odds. he has regained his health and the only side effects of his illness is deafness in one ear and mild Cerebral Palsy. Harrison’s family were so grateful to staff at the hospice that they have since worked tirelessly to raise £5,000 for the team and will be launching the hospice’s Colour Dash 5k running event this year.
Louis was asked to run at the event, but had to decline the offer as his work schedule clashed with the date. He said:
“I’m sorry that I won’t be there to support the team but it is an honour to pass the number one vest to Harrison.”
Meanwhile, Louis looked ultra serious when he played at his match this evening. He was cheered on by 4,000 fans, his family and girlfriend Eleanor Calder at the game, however none of his bandmates showed up to support the singer.
Niall Horan was the only One Direction singer to tweet Louis before the sports event.
Harry Styles is in LA, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik are at home in London and it looks like the 1D men may have forgotten Tommo’s big night.
The lack of contact between the X Factor stars has been causing some concern for fans of late. The band admitted themselves that they didn’t see each other for more than two months at the start of this year and it was revealed recently that many of the men don’t have each other’s mobile numbers.
However Harry has insisted that they are NOT splitting up any time soon and claimed they’ve just been enjoying a rare holiday.
