Robbie believes passionately in charity. In addition to hosting the GeeStor Annual Fun Day Summer Scorch, mentoring for the Rudolph Walker InterSchool Drama Awards and hosting the annual sell-out show in aid of Kwahu Tafo in Ghana at the Hackney Empire, Robbie also spends every Christmas morning serving in a soup kitchen, something he says reminds him of how lucky he is. He recently took part in GeeStor’s epic fundraising journey Silimanjaro, where Eddie & Lisa Nestor, Dave McQueen and Sarah Moore climbed Kilimanjaro in aid of 4 charities. Robbie was unable to make the climb, which in the documentary The Road to Silimanjaro he attributed to eating too much McDonald's food. He did, however, make a massive contribution in helping to raise £40,000 for the four charities.
