SIGNED photos of Dr Who actor and Headway Essex patron David Tennant are disappearing as fast as a dematerialising Tardis.

Earlier this year, the star of BBC1’s hit programme autographed 1,000 picture cards of himself to help raise money for the Colchester-based charity.

The cards been transported to the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Dubai, Japan and South Korea, as well as Europe.

So far, with just a few left to sell, he has helped boost the charity’s coffers by more than £21,000.

Every penny will help fund the care and support of brain injury survivors, their families and carers.

Fundraising and marketing director Joanna Wright said: “It has been a fantastic and fun fundraising venture and David has been such a good sport in signing all those cards.

“We have chatted to so many people from all over the world and have had some great emails from his fans who have been so excited to get his signature in a card.

“We are still waiting for some intergalactic enquiries, but haven’t had one yet.”

n In return for a donation - £20 is suggested plus £1 postage - you can get a signed photo of David Tennant by dropping in at 58b Head Street, Colchester or by downloading an application form at headwayessex.org.uk

If you want an autographed photo be sure to send for one before they run out.
