Watch out for Matthew Martino...
BY: NOEL BRYANS
A top political watch dog in the UK has warned that Matthew C Martino's Charity Trust MMBF (Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund) could end up having 'political interests' as the 22 year old Zimbabwean oligarch has been urged to join the political ranks in the past.
Martino rose to the public eye with his pilots manual Lets Fly and the subsequent Lets Fly Academy as well as his acting and producing works within the film and TV industry. Martino also holds his ground in the business sector and comes with a reported net worth of $200k as of 2014.
The MMBF (Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund) is a UK based charity that supports aspiring pilots worldwide through grants towards PPL,CPL and other pilot training courses and also supports filmmakers worldwide through training grants and bursaries, funding for first time filmmakers under 18 and provides sponsorship for film related events such as film festivals and film award ceremonies.
The Go For It author's publicist announced the MMBF in early October and confirmed the venture would launch on Martino's 22nd birthday but Martino himself still hasn't commented on the Trust, it is believed he won't have a frontline role in the governing of the firm.
In a statement MMBF’s publicist said ‘Matthew won't hold an official role in the organisation and as we saw in the Matthew Martino Rising Star Award by Colchester Film Festival, Matthew remained out of that to allow transparency’
