I was happier still when I noticed a familiar face !
Correct me if I'm wrong, but this young man looks very like the one I use on my Twitter account because I like it so much
The Appeal is nationwide even a Police Force in County Durham join in and raise £2,500
I haven't been able to locate the news story behind this photo. It only appeared post Oct 2012 as part of the scheme to abuse ANY organisation, Police force etc associated with Savile. I do have the following but cannot confirm it as FACT but include it anyway FYI
The blogger says that this came from 'something called Durham narpo' THIS is NARPO and try as I might I have NOT been able to locate any further information on the above
But, I digressed there for a moment. Back to FACTS because one staggering FACT is that, by November 1981 Jimmy's appeal had already raised HALF of the £10,000,000 he'd promised to get.
Those are the words of Norman Fowler then Sec of State for Social Services
The same month Jimmy unveils the new buildings plan to royalty
And Jimmy's team is working flat out to get the rest of that £10,000,000. Here he is with his right hand woman and PA, Janet Cope in 1982. I'll be blogging more about Mrs Cope and others involved with Jimmy and Stoke Mandeville Hospital in the next few days. After we get the new Unit built and opened that is !
