TV actor Philip Martin Brown -- who plays teacher Grantly Budgen in BBC One’s Waterloo Road -- and other stars from the hit TV show will speak at a special charity evening.
It takes place in the Tontine Hotel, Greenock on Monday 13 August 2012, in aid of Dreams Come True Inverclyde, the local arm of the UK national charity. The evening will start at 7.45 for 8 o’clock and food will be provided.
Dreams Come True brings joy to terminally and seriously ill children and young people across the UK aged between 2 and 21 by fulfilling their dreams.
Over the last two decades the charity has made dreams come true for over 5,000 children. The Inverclyde group was set up just over a year ago to raise the profile of the charity in Scotland and help make dreams come true for children in Inverclyde and then to the wider area.
This fundraising event is part of a wider challenge by Dreams Come True Inverclyde to raise £50,000 as part of their “Great Wall of China” trek in October.
Philip Martin Brown said: “I'm looking forward to helping the wonderful charity Dreams Come True in any way I can.”
Local Dreams Come True Co-ordinator Chris Jewell added: “We are very grateful to Philip and friends for helping in this way. Dreams Come True truly is a wonderful charity and we want to make as many dreams come true as possible.”
Waterloo Road is currently filming its eighth series on location at the former Greenock Academy School building which has been transformed into the new Waterloo Road set and production base. Filming started in April this year on an initial 50 one-hour episode commission, to be filmed over two years.
