December 2020 marked the 50th Anniversary of the Railway Children Film.
To celebrate the occasion, and to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and St Giles Trust, Jenny offered a Limited Edition of E. Nesbit's novel The Railway Children which she signed and dedicated. Those books have all now sold, raising hugely appreciated sums for the charities.
BUT STILL AVAILABLE: she did also offer 50 copies of this charming photograph, in 10x8", taken at Oakworth station with Bernard Cribbins as Mr Perks, Sally Thomsett as Phyllis, and Jenny as Roberta. Each will raise £25 for charity as she is covering all costs herself.There are still some of these available and they will also be signed & dedicated with a personal message from Jenny so do make sure you put a name in the dedication box below.
NB: Jenny will sign them when her Call The Midwife filming schedule allows so it may not reach you immediately. If you are ordering from outside theUK your envelope will also need to go to a post office and that is impossible for a little while as Jenny has to isolate when she's not filming in order to stay safe for filming. Only order if you are happy to wait. Thank you.
If you would generously like to offer support and are not buying a gift, or wish to add an additional donation, please use the Donation option. You can offer £5, (or £10 etc by choosing it more than once). Thank you.
These are the two charities that mean a lot to Jenny and to whom the support is going.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust has a personal resonance for her. Like 1 in 25 people in the UK, Jenny carries the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) gene; and as both her niece and her great-nephew have CF, she knows the full impact of this condition on her family. Those with CF have been particularly vulnerable during this pandemic and have needed all the support the CFTrust could give.
St Giles Trust, for whom Jenny has been a patron for over 12 years, help some of the most vulnerable people in our society. This winter they have created The Pantry which not only gives emotional support but will help families badly affected by COVID out of food poverty.
