Corrie Star supports Charity Quiz raising money for EDP
Dorset resident and Coronation Street star Thelma Barlow, who played Mavis in the soap opera, is supporting a charity quiz and auction organised by James Smith Funeral Directors in Swanage to
raise money for EDP.
The much loved actress is supporting the quiz as a final thank you before she moves from Dorset to Kent. The main auction prize is lunch/dinner for four with Thelma at the Isle of Purbeck Golf Club. Other prizes include gift vouchers for Fontwell Park racecourse, a family pass for Swanage Railway, chocolates, photography, wine and a studio tour of Hot Radio.
EDP are extremely grateful for the ongoing support given to our work by both Thelma and James Smith Funeral Directors which is part of Douch Family Funeral Directors.
Nick Douch, managing director, said: “We have supported EDP before and they do excellent work. Derek has been involved with the charity’s branch in Swanage over a number of years and we hope lots of people will turn up on the night to support the event and bid generously for the prizes. We are of course very grateful to Thelma for supporting the event and offering to pay for dinner for four at the Isle of Purbeck Golf Club.”
Thelma said: “It’s an opportunity to support a very good cause before I say goodbye to Swanage.”
The quiz will take place at the Swanage Conservative Club on Friday 6th May at 7pm. More information about how to get your tickets is available at http://www.funeraldirector.co.uk/ta-ra-chuck/ and on their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/610610459095501/.
