Los Angeles: Actor Bradley Cooper has landed a new job as one of the board of directors for Paul Newman`s children`s charity organisation.

The late Hollywood legend set up The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp organisation in 1988 to provide a summer camp experience for sick kids.

Cooper spent a week at the site in Connecticut as a counsellor working with the children, and now he has been given a more permanent role, reports contactmusic.com.

"When I spent a week at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp as a counsellor, I was amazed at how the spirit of camp is able to help kids facing so much escape their illness, make fast friends and remember what being a kid is all about. I am excited to be joining The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp`s Board of Directors," he said.

Newman died in 2008.
