David Tennant Coming To Jersey

20th June 2018

Former Doctor Who star David Tennant will be in Jersey next month.

He’ll attend a private screening of his new film called ‘You Me And Him’ at Cineworld on 1st July.

It was written by Daisy Aitkens, whose father Michael lives in Jersey.

Tickets are now on sale for the screening to raise money for the Jersey Baby Bean Appeal, which is trying to raise enough money for a seventh wireless fetal monitor at Jersey Hospital.

The Jersey Baby Bean Appeal is a charity collaboration between Philips Footprints Jersey and Baby Lifeline, a UK charity, of which David Tennant, Sally Phillips and the Film’s writer/director Daisy Aitkens, are ambassadors.

Baby LifeLine founder Judy Ledger set up the charity after the loss of three premature babies. It has raised more than £12 million for the UK charity and worldwide.

“We formed the Jersey Baby Bean Appeal with Jersey baby loss charity Philips Footprints, in 2016, to raise £105,000 to initially provide 5 wireless fetal monitors for the Jersey Maternity Unit’s Delivery Suite. Before this and to date, Philips Footprints has supported the cost of specialist health professional training for Jersey, staged by Baby Lifeline’s experts.”

Philips Footprints marked their 10th anniversary very recently by staging a Starlight ball raising a further £6,800 towards the 7th of these fetal monitors; to be situated in Jersey’s ante natal unit.

Further funding will be raised through the screening of You, Me and Him – a classic romantic comedy with a very modern twist that focuses on a lesbian couple falling pregnant at the same time and the toll infidelity and pregnancy takes on their love for one another.
